• 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
