报告名称：Radar for Indoor Monitoring
报告人： Prof. Moeness G. Amin, Villanova University, USA
“Seeing” through walls and imaging of building interiors are of prime importance in security and defense applications. For more than a decade, extensive research and development efforts have focused on first learning radar phenomenology for these applications. This is followed devising new algorithms to discern the “blueprint” of buildings, from outside looking, and to detect animate and inanimate objects behind walls. Some of these technologies are now driving a new radar application that touches on our daily living. It is radar for indoor monitoring, remote health monitoring and telemedicine. Radar holds much promise as a relatively new sensor modality with unique advantages that may complement other sensors, e.g. visual, infrared, and wearable sensors. Recent research includes monitoring human motions for effective man-machine interface, quantifying changes in habits and daily routines, and detection of normal and abnormal motion activities. Radar can also be a valuable non-wearable device to alert first responders in case of human fall. This is an emerging and important application for assisted living and the broad area of “aging-in-place.” In this tutorial, we discuss the on-going research and the main results regarding human activity recognition indoor. Both data-driven feature extraction and handcrafted features are considered. The former includes Principal Component Analysis and Neural Networks, whereas the former relies on the kinematic of human motion articulation. The challenges of classifying contiguous, inseparable motions are addressed. The tutorial will also deal with detection of gait abnormalities as well as automatic hand and arm gesture recognition.
