Dr Nicolas Cambier

Research Associate (Theme 4)
University of Leeds



Dr Nicolas Cambier is a Research Fellow at the University of Leeds. His expertise is on swarm robotics and adaptive controllers. Through his PhD, Nicolas developed algorithms to explore unknown environments with fleets of autonomous vehicles by adapting to the environment through self-organising communications and area tags. As part of Theme 4, Nicolas is developing distributed controllers that are able to cooperatively explore uncertain and dynamic network-like environments with constrained resources.
