Oreste Andrisano was born in Bologna, Italy, on February 14, 1952. In 1975, he received the Dr. Ing. degree in Electronic Engineering from the University of Bologna, (Italy). In the same year he joined the Department of Electronics, and became full professor of Telecommunication Systems.
In 1992, he became Director of CSITE-CNR (Centro di studio per l'Informatica e i Sistemi di Telecomunicazioni) and is currently coordinator of the Wireless Communication Group of IEIIT-CNR.

Research and activity:
His research activity concerns several fields in the digital communication area, such as digital signal processing, data transmission for satellite and fixed radio links applications, local wireless and mobile radio networks. In recent years, he has also been active in the Advanced Transport Telematics area, for vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure communications.
He was and is very active in several research projects:
  • 87-88: European Coordinator for Transmission Systems in PROMETHEUS (EUREKA)
  • 88-91: in the Steering Committe of the DACAR project (Data Acquisition and Communication Techniques and their Assessment for Road Transport, framework of DRIVE I). In particular, he served in the assessment and coordination group in cooperation with Volkswagen (Volfsburg) and Bakkenist (Amsterdam)
  • 87-94: responsible for the PROMETHEUS activities within bologna University
  • 91-94: responsible for the PROCOM activities in Italy
  • since '95 he is in the Steering Committee of CNIT (Consorzio Nazionale Interuniversitario per le Telecomunicazioni) and coordinator of the research project TELCO (Telecommunicatioon networks for Cooperative Driving)
  • Since August '96 he is Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Communications (Modulation for fading channels)
  • He has been been consultant of Fondazione U.Bordoni (Rome) and Telecom Italia Mobile.
He is reviewer of the main journals in the Telecommunication area, such as IEEE Transactions on Communications, IEEE Transactions on Vehicular Technologies, IEEE Journal on Selected Areas in Communications, IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems, European Transactions on Telecommunications, IEE Proceedings, IEE Electronics Letters.
He is or was member of I.E.E.E., IEEE Communication Society, IEEE Vehicular Technology Society, IEEE Radiocommunication Commettee, A.E.I. (Associazione Elettrotecnica ed Elettronica Italiana), Scientific Committe of the Telecommunication and Information Theory Group (C.N.R., 1986- 1989), official evaluator of the european research project submitted to European Community Commission (telematics-transport-february-january 1995).
Further activities: previous and current activities at european level (European Community Commission), advanced Telematics for Road transport; Telecommunications: vehicle to vehicle communication, vehicle-to-roadside communication, cooperative driving, etc., PROMETHEUS-PROCOM, DRIVE DACAR (assessment and coordination), DRIVE-PARIS.
