Controls is increasingly central to technology, science, and society, yet remains the “hidden technology.” Our appropriate emphasis on mathematical rigor and practical relevance in the past 40 years has not been similarly balanced with technical accessibility. The aim of this tutorial is to enlist the controls community in helping to radically rethink controls education. In addition to the brief 2 hour tutorial at CDC, we will have a website with additional materials, but particularly extensive online videos with mathematical details and case studies. We will also have a booth in the exhibition area at CDC with live demos and engaging competitions throughout the conference.
