After a brief discussion of the origin and development of classic control,intelligent control,and parallel control,the mathematical equations for a class of parallel control systems was presented for problems with high precision digital twin models.The key idea was modeling the time derivative of system control instead of system control itself,which leads to differential equation based control rather than algebraic relationship based control,made the system and its control symmetrical in both form and content mathematically,thus provided the foundation for implementing human-like control and intelligent control.Same idea was also applied to system output equations,and proposed a new way for active sensing and design of parallel sensors.Preliminary results along those lines are illustrated and discussed.

Key words: parallel control, parallel sensing, digital twins, parallel intelligence, parallel system, intelligent control
