3-day IAS Focused Program on Bio-inspired Autonomous System and Biomimetics of Flying Animals (1 - 3 Dec) is part of IAS Focused Program on Bio-inspired Flight System and Bio-inspired Autonomous System, held 24 Nov. - 3 Dec., 2014, at Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. Co-sponsors Division of Biomedical Engineering (BME), The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering (MAE), The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, Shanghai Jiao Tong University and Chiba University International Cooperative Research Center (SJTU-CU ICRC).
Abstract: Bio-inspired engineering seeks sustainable solutions by emulating nature's time-tested patterns and strategies. This new big engineering combines the disciplines of biology and technology or other field of innovation with the goal of solving practical problems through the abstraction, transfer, and application of knowledge gained from biological systems. Bio-inspired flight system presents one of the sophisticated and exciting ventures in biomimetics, integrating different aspects cross biology, computing, mechanical, and aeronautical engineering, which offers promises to design smart and multi-functional autonomous systems and robots for many great engineering applications.
