A New Efficient Tracking Algorithm for through Wall Tracking of Moving Target by Using Uwb Radar

Abstract

In this paper, through wall moving target tracking by M-sequence UWB radar is described. For that purpose, the imaging method consists of radar signal processing phases such as raw radar data preprocessing, background subtraction, data fusion obtained by receiving antennas of radar, detection, localization and tracking itself, is used. Our paper is focused on last phase tracking. Here, new nonlinear low-complex two-section tracking-filter (2S-TF) is introduced for target tracking based on the target localization phase result. It will be shown, that the proposed new tracking filter presented in this paper can provide better smoothing of target trajectory at much less computational complexity than the wellknow linear Kalman filters.
