Abstract: In the last decade, it has been shown that short-range ultra-wide band radars (sensors) can provide the efficient solution for human being localization for line-of-sight and non-line-of-sight scenarios. To localize people correctly using this technology, the corresponding detection and localization methods have to be selected according to the nature of person motion state. In this respect, two basic kinds of persons can be identified. They are so-called moving and static persons. In this paper, we will introduce a radar signal processing procedure allowing a joint detection and localization of moving and static persons. Good performance properties of this procedure will be confirmed by its application for an experimental scenario represented by a through-the-wall detection and localization of a single person with changing nature of his/her movement.


Keywords: Detection, Localization, Moving and static person, Radar, Sensors, Signal processing, Target, Tracking, UWB.
