- Motivation
- Switched System Model
- Reachable Set Computation
- Control Law Synthesis

- Modern robotics applications commonly use digital controllers to control continuous dynamics

- Overall system dynamics features
- High level logic, e.g. maneuver library
- Low level controls, e.g. motor control
