What do self driving cars, power grids and homeostasis in biology have in  common? Seemingly not much. If one looks "under the hood", however, one  discovers that they all rely on a common principle that renders their  operation robust and reliable. This principle, known as feedback, is  intuitive: see where you are, compare to where you want to be, and move  in the direction that reduces the difference between the two. Though the feedback principle itself is simple to explain, understanding its  implications, uses and limitations is far from it and forms the topic of a branch of engineering known as automatic control.
