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, an Innovation Leader and Digital Transformer, manages the "AUTONOMY and CIRCULARITY Laboratory" (ACL) of HITACHI’s
Corporate R&D in Europe, with around 20 Researchers in 2 main sites :
Sophia Antipolis, France, and Munich, Germany. My Lab was previously called “Automotive and Industry Lab”, from 2015 till April 2022.
the Transport domain, we innovate with advanced ICT and smart
perception and control components for Connected, Cooperative, Autonomous
and Electric Vehicles. The Automotive, the Rail and the Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMR) domains benefit from our innovations.
the Industry and Circular Economy domains, we innovate production and
manufacturing processes, supply and value chains, products’ life cycles
and machinery with advanced ICT and Industrie4.0 concepts.
also cooperate with DFKI on Artificial Intelligence (AI) applied to
Human Activity Recognition, particularly for Workers safety.
2015, I managed 2 other R&D sites of HITACHI in Europe, within the
"EU Big Data Laboratory": in Manchester, UK, and in Copenhagen, DK,
where we applied Big Data/Analytics for eHealth and Hospitals
I also contribute as Senior Researcher to HITACHI,
and as bridge towards European potential partners and customers of the
HITACHI Group Business Divisions.
I represent HITACHI in several
European or French public projects’ Steering Committees, where I also
contribute to, together with my Teams.
I was Coordinator of the EU FP7 project “eCo-FEV”, and my Team contributed to the project results. My
Team successfully contributed to the Autonet2030, DRIVE C2X and DENSE
European projects, and to the HumanDrive UK project. We are an active
Partner of the ServCity UK project. We will be active partner of the EVENTS project in Horizon Europe from Sept 2022 on.
is Full Member of CCAM, with me appointed as the official Contact for
the HITACHI Group. We have been ETSI Member for 15 years.
contributed to several publications, and am/was Reviewer within some
Conferences’ Technical Committees. I coordinated some Sessions at
different Conferences, and was invited as Panelist several times.

field of ICT for the Transport and Smart Manufacturing sectors.
Max was born in
Gorizia (Italy) on December 31st, 1970 and I lived in
Gradisca d'Isonzo withhis parents until almost 1989. After graduating
from the "LiceoScientifico Duca degli Abruzzi" high school in Gorizia
he got hisMaster Degree in Electrical Engineering (specialization in
Telecommunications) in June 1997 from the "UniversitÓ degli Studi
di Trieste", Italy.
From November 1996 to
April 1997, Max developed a Laurea Thesis ("Analisys of a digital image
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
Antennas in Wireless/Cellular Systems has been developed, "Distributed Antennas for
Cellular Wireless Systems".
From August 1998 toDecember
1998 he collaborated with
NE&T-Webtechna, an InternetService Provider in Trieste (Italy)
Network Configurator and Designer.
