Philippe Lucidarme is currently assistant professor at the University of Angers. His research interests include multi-agent systems and machine learning applied to robotics. He is in charge of the robotics research activities of the Laboratoire d’Ingénierie des Systèmes Automatisés (LISA) in Angers. He received his BS and MS in Electronics and Automation from the University of Lille in 1999 and 2000 respectively. He received his PhD degrees in Robotics from the University of Montpellier in 2003. The same year, he received a postdoctoral fellowship from the Japanese Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS). Until September 2004, he worked on the distributed control of the humanoid robot HRP2 at the Joint Robotics Laboratory (JRL, AIST, Tsukuba, Japan). For 2 years, he is managing a team involved in the design and control of Unmanned Grounded Vehicles (UGV).
