17th IEEE International Conference on Networking, Sensing and Control

 October 30 - November 2,  2020, Nanjing, China


Professor Xiaohong Guan

Xi’an Jiaotong University, China


Networking, intelligence and integration of cyber and physical systems are the trend of information science and technology development.  Cyber-physical systems (CPS) is the foundation of the new industrial revolution, energy revolution and technology revolution.  This speech will focus on the impact of CPS on manufacturing, energy, transportation, aerospace and astronautic engineering, and the associated challenges on cyber-physical modeling, intelligence design, system optimization and control, and integrated security.
