Francesco Raviglione was born in Biella (Italy) in 1994. He got his bachelor degree in Computer Engineering, in Politecnico di Torino, in 2016. He then obtained a master degree in Mechatronic Engineering, in December 2018, in Politecnico di Torino, focusing, when choosing between the different second year courses, on embedded systems, automotive controls and networking technologies for mechatronics systems.
Starting from January 2019 and until April 2019 he had grant in Politecnico di Torino, under the supervision of Professor Claudio Ettore Casetti, working on the performance evaluation of IEEE 802.11p-compatible wireless cards and on open source solutions for vehicular communications.
He was then on a 6 months pre-Ph.D. grant under the supervision of Professor Claudio Ettore Casetti, from May 1st 2019, joining the TNG group and officially starting his Ph.D. on November 1st 2019.
He concluded his Ph.D. cum laude on December 2022, presenting a thesis titled “Open Platforms for Connected Vehicles”, and he is now a PostDoc at the Department of Electronics and Telecommunications.
As main research interests, he is working in the field of developing and evaluating platforms able to provide vehicular connectivity (both cellular, C-V2X, and DSRC – Dedicated Short-Range Communications), in different scenarios, and on open source, customizable, solutions for wireless and vehicular networking use cases. He is also one of the developers of the ms-van3t vehicular networking simulation and emulation framework (https://github.com/ms-van3t-devs/ms-van3t).
