Radar can be an extremely useful sensing technique to observe persons. It perceives persons behind walls or at great distances and in situations where persons have no or poor visibility. Human motion modulates the radar signal which can be observed in the spectrogram of the received signal. Extraction of these movements enables the animation of a person in virtual reality. The authors focus on a fast feature-based approach to estimate human motion features for real-time applications. The human… Expand
