State Machines

Watch the videos in this series to learn the fundamental concepts of state machines. A state machine is a model that describes the behavior of a system in each state. It defines how the system should transition between these states when certain conditions are true. State machines are used to model logic in many dynamic systems such as automobiles, aircraft, robots, and mobile phones.
