Noam Benelli

Noam Benelli Noam Benelli is our research assistant, a 4th-year undergrad at the Mechanical Engineering. Noam is working on an exciting simulation of unmanned airborne self-propelled vehicles (a sort of UAV) that navigate and search for a source of a scalar in a turbulent plume. This work started with some idea of a possible way male moths navigate to females, studied in research of Yftach Golov at the Volcani Center wind tunnel. Noam started with the model https://github.com/InsectRobotics/pompy and developed it using some ideas from our recent publication in PLoS One.  

 

You can follow now the link to the new open source computational framework for bio-inspired navigation strategies, called MothPy
