Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). First detected in 2019 in Wuhan, the capital of Hubei, China, the disease has since spread globally resulting in the coronavirus pandemic of 2019–20. The COVID-19 pandemic has brought travel to a standstill. Because of my work as an active researcher, I used to travel quite often around the world prior the COVID-19 pandemic.
Last summer I attended two conferences in China. The 2014 IEEE International Conference on Information and Automation (ICIA), in Hailar and the 2014 IEEE International Conference on Mechatronics and Automation (ICMA), in Tianjin. On my way to Tianjin, I took this amazing super fast train. The train is able to reach speed peaks of about 400 km/h. And it makes almost no noise, at all! Enjoy the video :)
