In this paper a novel approach for a high precision local positioning radar using an ultra-wideband (UWB) technique is presented. The concept is based on the standard frequency modulated continuous wave (FMCW) radar principle combined with short pulses to fulfill the emission limits given by the official regulatory authorities. Besides the well known advantages of a FMCW radar, the proposed system implies a wide frequency bandwidth. With this concept, a high accuracy in dense multipath indoor… CONTINUE READING
