From cruise control to self balancing quadcopters, PID controllers harness negative feedback loops to provide the brains between a device’s sensors and its outputs.

But how do they work? Why do we need each of the components? After introducing control systems and their objectives, this talk demonstrates how the PID control system achieves a responsive, stable system in so many applications. Ending with a live simulation, it aims to present the intuition behind the reasons why an abstract algorithm which is defined using only the calculus operators is so successful in applied contexts.
