scientific publications During my PhD I have been working on different subjects involved with localization techniques, i.e. with systems and algorithms providing an estimate of the physical location(s) of some device(s). This research area also includes tracking systems (i.e. continuous estimation of trajectories of moving devices), radar systems (where the target is usually non-cooperative), robot navigation systems, etc. Wikipedia contains a page about Real-time Location Systems (RTLS) which provides an overview about some aspects of this wide research area.

Additional information are available on the website of the lab that hosted me during my PhD; in particular more information are available on the page about indoor positioning.

As effort to comply with the Reproducible Research Standard, I publish the source code (mostly MATLAB code) which I developed during my PhD and which was used to generate the numerical results of my papers. All the code is accessible through my SourceForge project collecting my scientific research code or through the links below.

More details about some of my research work will be available in my PhD thesis (however, it is not publicly available for now).

The rest of this page lists my publications organized differentiating between journal, conference and submitted publications. Note that some information about my publications are also available on my public Mendeley profile, on my ResearcherID page and on my Google Scholar profile.

PhD thesis My PhD thesis contains a summary of my whole PhD research. Because of undergoing patent applications, it will not be publicly available until 2016. In the meanwhile, you can contact me if you need information about it. The thesis reference is:

    Montorsi, F.; "Localization and Tracking for Indoor Environments", Ph.D. dissertation, University of Modena and Reggio Emilia, 2013.
