What is Telemetry?
Telemetry : The process of measuring at a distance.  Aeronautical telemetry: The process of making measurements on an aeronautical vehicle and sending those measurements to a distant location for analysis
Flows Pressures Temperatures Vibrations Velocities

If it is ORANGE it is flight test measurement

Instrumentation & Control Systems Amity School of Engineering &Technology

Desired is compared with a measurement of the actual in order to measure error. Difference between the desired input and actual output is equal to the error.

This measurement is obtained by visual and tactile body movement (feedback). Additional feedback from steering wheel by the hand (sensor).
