Education

  • 1986 - B.Sc., Computer Engineering, Faculty of EE, Technion - I.I.T.
  • 1987 - M.Sc., Electrical Engineering, Yale University, New Haven, CT, USA
  • 1990 - Ph.D., Electrical Engineering, Yale University, New Haven, CT, USA

Research Interests

  • Robot vehicles: navigating an experimental mobile robot to a goal while avoiding collision with obstacles, while information is gathered on-line using sensors.
  • "Walking" robots: planning motion of articulated mechanisms like "snake" and "spider" robots through a sequence of stable equilibria.
  • Others: robot juggling, workpiece fixturing, assembly planning.

Guest Appointments

  • Post Doctorate Fellow, Computer Science, Stanford Univ. (1991)
  • Lecturer, U.C. Berkeley (1992)
  • Visiting Faculty, Caltech, ME Dept. (1993)
