Electro-Mechanical System

The phrase electro-mechanical system originated to describe all devices with interaction between electrical and mechanical elements – for example, a motor, or a switch. Now it means a mechanical device which is triggered or controlled by an electrical or electronic device including, for example, the huge number of products containing electronic microcontrollers, ranging from washing machines to aircraft fly-by-wire controls.
