Cybernetics

Cybernetics is a broad field that encompasses several topics: control and estimation, sensor handling and computer vision, embedded and real-time systems, hardware design, simulation theory, robotics and filtering techniques. The name is derived from the Greek term κυβερνάω (kybernáō) which means to steer, navigate or govern. This word is again the basis for this page.
