Dr. Elon Rimon is currently affiliated to Technion – Israel Institute of Technology, Israel, continuing research in the specialized scientific area of Mechanical Engineering.
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.
