Prizes and Commendations

2003-2006   JCT awards for distinguished academic staff

In the last week of February 2000, the British internet paper, Optics.Org, published an article of mine (Schweitzer N. and Arieli Y., "A wide-angle narrow bandpass optical detection system optimally designed to have large signal-to-noise ratio", Appl. Opt. 39 (6), 913-918, (2000)) among the most important innovations in Electro-optics of that week.
Communal Positions

1985-present             Member of the Center for Prevention of Road Injuries (CPRI)

We (JCT and CPRI) developed a unique system for prevention of road accidents.  The road-unit of the system could automatically measure the speed of each passing vehicle and its time-gap and distance from the preceding car.  Many road tests were made that proved that using the system can efficiently improve the behavior of drivers. We held several national and international conferences concerning prevention of road accidents. Following our efforts Mr. Katsav, then The Minister of Transportation, announced while visiting JCT, September 1990, an additional section to the Transportation Regulations indicating the allowable time-gap between vehicles.

 

Ties to Other Institutions

I conducted projects for the Ministry of Transportation, Ministry of Defense, Ministry of Energy and Infrastructure, Ministry of Health, IDF and for the Israeli Police. I had ties to Bar-Ilan University, Hebrew University, Nahal Soreq Nuclear Research Center, Armament Development Authority (Rafael), IAI (Israel Aircraft Industry) Shaare Zedek Hospital and Wingate Institute, Netanya.  I had and still have a significant cooperation with the industry (tens of companies).

 

Research Activities

  • 40 projects and technological reports for government and industry
  • 3 patents
  • Instruction of some 90 students' final projects out of which about one third was done with the cooperation of the industry.
  • Organizing international conferences on optical communications and on prevention of road accidents
  • Consultant to:
    • Researchers from the Department of Mathematics, Bar-Ilan University
    • The Israeli Police
    • Several industrial companies
