Short Bio
Dr. -Ing. Ahmad Kamal Nasir is director of Engineering Laboratory at LUMS. He is an assistant professor of electrical engineering at LUMS. 
He received his PhD in Mobile Robotics in 2014 from University of Siegen Germany on Cooperative SLAM. As a graduate student, he also obtained two masters degrees in Mechatronics from Uni-Siegen and UET Lahore. Before that, he completed his BSc in Mechanical Engineering from UET Lahore, Pakistan. He has also worked in industry as product development manager at the research and development department of MicroTech Industries, Lahore, Pakistan. 
In 2014, he has joined LUMS. He is teaching mobile robotics and engineering workshop courses for both graduate and undergraduate students at LUMS. He has also given many talks at various international and national events. He is a member of IEEE Robotics and Automation Scocienty. He does research in mobile robotics, computer vision, remote sensing and embedded control systems. His research goals are to apply solutions from mobile robotics, control systems and computer vision to real world problems in agriculture.  His current research projects includs development of unmanned aerial and ground systems for mapping, precision agriculture and forestry applications. 

In 2015, he along with his collegue, Prof. Dr. Mian Muhammad Awais, have established a Precision Agriculture and Forestry Research Cluster within School of Science and Egnineering of Lahore University of Management Sciences. The group promote  the use of Unmanned Aerial System in a broad range of application fields like precision agriculture and forest carbon estimation, deforestation and forest degradation assessment.

In 2018, along with three other colleagues, Prof. Dr. Mian Muhammad Awais, Dr. Abubakr Muhammad and Dr. Murtaza Taj from LUMS, we got a funding of US$ one million from HEC to establish first National Agriculture Robotics Lab at LUMS, Pakistan. Currently, six projects in three areas, water efficency, reliable crop monitoring and enviorment sustainability are underway at the lab.
