Massimiliano (Max) got his
MasterDegree in Electronic Engineering in 1997 in
Italy (University ofTrieste), his Doctoral School Degree in
Communication Systems in 1998 in Switzerland (EPFL) and his PhD in
Mobile Communications in 2002 in France (Eurecom Institute - EPFL)..
Max manages the HITACHI "Automotive & Industry Lab." (A&IL) within the European Centre for Social Innovation (CSI EU).
A&IL includes 2 sites:
in Sophia Antipolis, FR, we innovate with Information &
Communication Technologies (ICT) for the CONNECTED AUTONOMOUS CARS
domain (including related Standardization) and their integration within
- in Munich, DE, we innovate with SMART AUTOMOTIVE
COMPONENTS for next generation Dynamic Control of vehicle, in
particular Autonomous Vehicles, and with SMART ENGINE COMBUSTION
In both above sites, we innovate as well for next
generation SMART MANUFACTURING PROCESSES, in particular with the
application of AI and IoT/M2M for Industrie4.0 domain.
previously managed 2 other R&D sites of HITACHI in Europe: in
Manchester, UK, and in Copenhagen, DK, where we apply Big
Data/Analytics for eHealth and Hospitals management.

inthe multidimensional space of its features: application to the
segmentation of a video sequence") at the Signal
Processing Laboratory (LTS) of the EPFL,
Switzerland, in collaboration with the Image Processing Laboratory (IPL)
of the University of Trieste for the Esprit-Noblesse European project.
From October 1997 to
July1998 Max was a graduate student of
the Doctoral School inCommunication Systems at the
Systems Department of the EPFL (LCM).A project on Distributed
