PolyU & CASIL signed collaborative research framework agreement to advance aerospace engineering

February 27, 2017

The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) and China Aerospace International Holdings Ltd. (CASIL), a public-listed subsidiary of China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation (CASC), reached a strategic collaborative research framework agreement to advance aerospace engineering. The collaboration aims to establish a mutually beneficial platform to address the extensive technical needs of the aerospace engineering of China leveraging PolyU's strengths in innovations and technology.

By forging closer ties between PolyU's research and China aerospace engineering, focusing on robotics, intelligent systems and sustainable energy, the collaboration is expected to result in high-impact and high-value aerospace engineering applications, as well as marketable aerospace products. A joint laboratory on intelligent systems will be established to pioneer research in robotic design and control, energy-saving and cost-efficient vibration control, intelligent systems or structures for control, measurement, sensing and health monitoring etc. in the aerospace field. The collaborative research framework agreement also encompasses professional exchange, visiting program, taught courses, distinguished lectures, funding support and all kinds of collaborative research both in Chinese Mainland and Hong Kong.

Ir. Professor Alex Wai, Vice President (Research Development) of PolyU, said, "The collaborative research framework agreement is established to combine PolyU's strength in applied technological innovation and CASC's leadership in the aerospace industry for developing high-impact industrial applications and services." Dr. Xingjian Jing, Associate Professor of the Department of Mechanical Engineering, PolyU, who leads the R&D of robotic systems and vibration control in this strategic scheme, also believes that this collaboration will greatly facilitate and promote the R&D of high-impact robotic and vibration control technologies of PolyU to be applied in national aerospace engineering.

These days when we want to know where we are or how to get where we want to go, most of us will pull out a smart phone with a built-in GPS and map app. Some of us old timers might still use an old school paper map from time to time. But we didn't always used to lean so heavily on maps and technology, and in some remote places of the world some people still navigate and wayfind their way without the aid of these tools... and in some cases do better without them.
