In this article it presents the development of an interactive system, which allows the user to interact with an air flow temperature control process, implemented with two control algorithms: Proportional Integral Derivative PID and Fuzzy control. It is intended to demonstrate the usefulness of an interactive system in industrial applications, it is used a low-cost embedded system the Beaglebone Black and LINUX Debian free software, also the system allows to enter the desired control parameters and to adequately observe the behavior of the process and the efficiency of the controller; for the verification of the interactive system, a model of air flow temperature control plant was constructed, which is currently used as a didactic module in the Laboratory of Process Control of the University.
