Chao Xu (许超), TRUTH Associate Professor of control science & engineering at Zhejiang University, was recently selected to attend the 2017 China-America Frontiers of Engineering (CAFOE) symposium held on June 22 – 24 in Shanghai.
Sixty of the most promising engineers under the age of 45 from China and the United States met for an intensive 2-1/2 day symposium on developments at the cutting edge of engineering technology in four areas: Intelligent Transportation, Electrochemical Energy Storage, Synthetic Biology, and Robots Everywhere.
Xu was invited to deliver a plenary talk during the CAFOE 2017 on Intelligent Robotic Locomotion: From Dynamic Walking to Autonomous Flight.
The event is intended to facilitate international and cross-disciplinary research collaboration, promote the transfer of new techniques and approaches across disparate engineering fields, and encourage the creation of a transpacific network of world-class engineers. CAFOE is carried out in cooperation with the Chinese Academy of Engineering.
