Embedded controllers are often the heart of an industrial control system or a process control application. They may also be at the centre of a portable data acquisition system or remote controller that allows an application to keep running even if its umbilical link to the outside world is cut. At the same as control systems is an important application class of embedded systems, feedback control is also an important basic technology that can be employed in the design of embedded real-time systems. Feedback control is a well established and mathematically well-founded theory that is ideal for handling uncertainties.
