This volume includes papers from the National Academy of Engineering's 1997 US Frontiers of Engineering (USFOE) Symposium held in September 1997. USFOE meetings bring together 100 outstanding engineers (ages 30 to 45) to exchange information about leading-edge technologies in a range of engineering fields. The 1997 symposium covered four topic areas: Biomechanics, Sensors and control for manufacturing processes, Safety and security issues, Decision-making tools for design and manufacturing, and Intelligent transportation systems.  Appendixes include information about contributors, the symposium program, and a list of meeting participants.
