Systems & Controls

Worker scans images and videos on computer screens. Exponent engineers provide support for computer control systems.

Limit electromechanical system failures

Clients turn to Exponent for tough challenges related to systems and controls that are critical for a breadth of products and applications — from missile guidance and ADAS technology to utility power generation and consumer electronics.

How does Exponent's multidisciplinary approach provide better insights for computer control systems challenges?

Evaluating complex control systems accurately requires an experienced team of electrical and computer engineers and scientists as well as a breadth of industry knowledge. Exponent's multidisciplinary teams of electrical, vehicle, mechanical, thermal, and materials corrosion engineers support design, manufacturing, testing, auditing, and reliability of systems and their electronic controls.

Control systems comprise mechanical and electrical components (e.g., pneumatic, hydraulic, and/or electrical devices) and electronic control units of various forms (e.g., microcontrollers, programmable logic controllers, and/or distributed control systems). These systems are complex and can require extensive testing, evaluation, and validation to mitigate safety and assess failure risks. We evaluate many applications of control systems, such as products, vehicles, machines, and processes, and we provide consulting support for design; incident and failure analysis; litigation; and international arbitrations.  


Electromechanical systems have multiple touchpoints and intricate components that require careful evaluation. Exponent's skilled electrical engineers and scientists offer a full range of services designed to assist you in understanding and mitigating system failures.
