"Electronic" devices and systems provide today's vehicles with added comfort, convenience, safety, and performance.

These devices and systems, like their "electrical" counterparts, control electricity to do work. The current flows through a semiconductor - rather than through wires. The movement usually produces an electrical signal - rather than heat, light, or motion. And, this signal may be transmitted, amplified, or used in special circuits to perform logical decision-making functions.

Since there are seldom any moving (electromechanical) parts, these devices and systems are often called solid-state electronics.
