ISR News Story

ISR alum George Kantor co-authors new robotics book


ISR alum Dr. George Kantor is co-author of the new book, Principles of Robot Motion: Theory, Algorithms and Implementation, published by MIT Press, 2005.

George earned his ECE Ph.D. in 1999. His advisor was Professor P.S. Krishnaprasad (ECE/ISR). Since graduating, George has been a project scientist in the Field Robotics Center at the Robotics Institute, Carnegie Mellon University. He teaches courses in robotic manipulation and controls and conducts research in control, sensing, and navigation for robotic systems. His current research projects include autonomous navigation for an underwater robot to explore the Zacaton cenote (a 300+ meter deep flooded sinkhole in northern Mexico), control of a human-sized mobile robot that balances on a single spherical wheel, and a distributed wireless sensor network for automation of intensive agricultural processes. George married his wife Lori in June 2000, and they had their first son, Miles, last November.
