This Institute was founded by the parents of the three IDF soldiers, in memory of their sons, Benny Avraham, Adi Avitan, and Omer Souad, kidnapped and murdered by Hezbollah in 2000, in the battle for the northern border in October 2000. The soldiers' bodies were returned to their homeland more than three years later, in January 2004. The Institute was inaugurated in June 2008, and is currently engaged in developing patrol autonomous robotic systems for guarding, identifying and handling suspicious objects and events as well as in developing autonomous robotic systems for mapping and delivery.
Background music: Shana Tova; Lyrics by Levin Kipnis, Music by Nahum Vardi.
הָפַכְתָּ מִסְפְּדִי לְמָחוֹל לִי (תהילים ל', י"ב)
You have turned my lament into dancing for me; you loosened my sackcloth and girded me with joy. Tehilim 30:12
The Sons' Hora Folkdance was produced by the R&D Institute for Intelligent Robotic Systems, at the Department of Computer Science, College of Management Academic Studies, in memory of Benny, Adi and Omar, who, in sacrificing their lives, have made us determined to make every effort to overcome the enemy and especially, to prevent the circumstances that led to their murder from happening again.
