Dr. Victor C Chen’s new book: The Micro-Doppler Effect in Radar, Second Edition
Updated and expanded second edition of an Artech House classic includes the most recent breakthroughs in vital sign and gesture recognition via micro-Doppler radar.
Covers basic principles of the Doppler effect and micro-Doppler effect and describing basic applications of micro-Doppler signatures in radar.
Presents detailed procedures about how to generate and analyze micro-Doppler signatures from radar signals.
Readers learn how to model and animate an object (such as human, spinning top, and rotating rotor blades) with movement, simulation of radar returns from the object, and generating micro-Doppler signature.
Covers Google’s Project Soli, which demonstrated the use of the radar micro-Doppler effect to sense and recognize micromotions of human hand gestures for controlling devices.
Discusses noncontact detection of human vital signs (micromotions of breathing and heart beating) using radar, another important application of radar micro-Doppler sensors
