The use of these techniques was illustrated with examples from XAVIER, an indoor mobile robot, and the National Aeronautic and Space Administration's recently completed remote-agent experiment on the DS1 spacecraft.

Leo Joskowicz (Hebrew University) presented "Finding and Correcting Bugs in Mechanical Designs," which presented an overview of a new method for analyzing mechanical systems, identifying the three main types of bugs (kinematic, dynamic, and tolerancing) and describing new algorithms for computation and visualization.
