Fluidics is a new technology which utilises the flow of fluids to accomplish sensing computation or control. Although preliminary investigations were made on some fluidic elements at the beginning of the 20th century the recognition of fluidics as a new technology is usually attributed to the announcement in 1960 of the work being carried out at the Harry Diamond Laboratories in the U.S.A.
