Lounis Adouane is an associate professor at the Institut Pascal - Polytech Clermont-Ferrand in France. He received an MS in 2001 from IRCCyN-ECN Nantes, where he worked on the control of legged mobile robotics. In 2005, he obtained a PhD in automatic control from FEMTO-ST laboratory-UFC Besançon. During his PhD studies, he deeply investigated the field of multi-robot systems, especially those related to bottom-up and hybrid control architectures. Dr. Adouane’s current research topics are related to both autonomous navigation of mobile robots in complex environments and cooperative control architectures for multi-robot systems. He is the author/coauthor of more than 60 refereed international papers on these topics.
