Gianni Pasolini received the M.Sc. degree in Telecommunications Engineering and the Ph.D. degree in Electronic Engineering and Computer Science from the University of Bologna, Italy, in 1999 and 2003, respectively. In May 1999 he joined the CSITE (Centre for Studies in Computer Science and Telecommunication Systems) of the Italian National Research Council (CNR).  Here he started working on wireless communication systems, digital signal processing, intelligent transportation systems and physical layer security. Since 2003 he has the appointment of Professor for several courses in the area of Telecommunications at the University of Bologna. In October 2006 he became a Researcher at the University of Bologna, where he carries out his research activity also within the context of several research projects, in tight cooperation with some of the most important manufacturers in the telecommunications fields.



Alessandro Bazzi received the Laurea degree and the Ph.D. degree in telecommunications engineering both from the University of Bologna, Italy, in 2002 and 2006, respectively. Since 2002, he joined the Institute of Electronics, Computer and Telecommunication Engineering (IEIIT) of the National Research Council of Italy (CNR). He also participates with WiLAB and he is Research Affiliate at CNIT. Since 2006 he acts as adjunct Professor, running courses at the University of Bologna or the University of Ferrara. His work mainly focuses on the performance investigation through field trials, analysis, and simulation of vehicular networks and heterogeneous wireless access networks, with particular reference to medium access control, routing, and radio resource management. 




Mirko Mirabella received the Laurea degree in Telecommunications Engineering from the University of Bologna in 2017. Since 2009 then he cooperates with the Wireless Communications Lab (WiLAB) at the University of Bologna on the development and implementation of digital signal processing algorithms on DSPs and FPGAs.  His areas of interest include the model-based design paradigm and domotics. Recently, he is committed to the development of second-generation digital satellite telecommunications systems DVB-S2, Android device software, VLC data transmission systems.

He also collaborates with several embedded systems companies and hardware implementation on FPGAs.

The skills acquired over the years have allowed him, in March 2018, to found the Neptune s.r.l. of which today he is CEO. 


WiLAB  is the wireless communication laboratory founded in Bologna by Prof. Oreste Andrisano. It results from the close cooperation among the National Research Council (CNR) and the Universities of Bologna and Ferrara.

WiLab includes professors and researchers who are well known at international level; most of them are involved in scientific management of international conferences and magazines. Moreover, Network of excellences at European level and COST activities have been promoted and coordinated within WiLab.

The research activity carried out at WiLab integrates theoretical analysis and experimental investigation and covers the most relevant topics in the scenario of radio systems, such as:

- ICT for Transportation PHO_5630

- Multimedia Communication systems

- Cellular Communications toward 5G

- Digital Video over Wireless

- FPGA and DSP for Communications

- Short Range Communications and Sensor Networks

- Heterogeneous Wireless Networks

- Digital Transmission Theory

- Indoor localization techniques

- Immersive communication systems
