The dulog system originates from a system developed as a German university research project which has been well tested in various studies with bats. Publications from these studies are listed below. As the spin-off and rebranding to dulog happened recently, publications from 2020 and earlier don’t name the system dulog yet but use the same technology in earlier iterations.

Additional studies with the dulog system, also with other animals, already have been conducted, but are not published yet. We will update this page, as soon as the publications become available.
