Human walking estimation with radar

  title={Human walking estimation with radar},
  author={P. V. Dorp and F. Groen},
Radar can be used to observe humans that are obscured by objects such as walls. These humans cannot be visually observed. The radar measurements are used to animate an obscured human in virtual reality. This requires detailed information about the motion. The radar measurements give detailed information about the movements of the human body parts; the Doppler signatures are time-varying and observed in the spectrogram. The authors focus on the extraction of parameters and describe a method for… Expand
