Mixed-phase clouds, which have a significant impact on the global climate, are complex systems where liquid water and various types of ice particles coexist at temperatures below the freezing point. A key process in mixed-phase clouds is riming which alters microphysical and scattering properties of ice particles. Cloud radar is a powerful...

The problem of the limited accuracy of precipitation Doppler spectrum moments estimation measured by fast azimuthally scanning weather radars is addressed. A novel approach for the Doppler moment estimation based on maximum likelihood estimation is proposed. A simplified semianalytical parametric model for the precipitation power spectral...

The challenge of reconstructing the Doppler spectrum of a precipitation-like event observed by a fast-scanning weather radar is addressed. A novel method is proposed where the echo sequence in time is assumed to be a complex Gaussian process with a known covariance structure. It is a two-step approach where the first step is the estimation of...

In this paper, the full calibration chain of FMCW radar with simultaneous transmission of two orthogonally polarized orthogonal waveforms is considered. Specifically for this type of polarimetric radar, compensation of signals’ biases and equalization of the amplification gains of the parallel polarimetric channels in the receiver are jointly...

Incoherent backscattering of mm-waves from natural rough surfaces is considered. A novel method is proposed to determine the statistical properties of surface scattering from range profile measurements. The method is based on modeling the road surface as a grid of uncorrelated scattering elements, described by normalized scattering matrices....

As one of the crucial sensors for environment sensing, frequency modulated continuous wave (FMCW) radars are widely used in modern vehicles for driving assistance/autonomous driving. However, the limited frequency bandwidth and the increasing number of equipped radar sensors would inevitably cause mutual interference, degrading target...

Multi-mission satellite altimetry data have been used to study the spatial and temporal variability in global storm surge water levels. This was done by means of a time-dependent extreme value analysis applied to the monthly maximum detided water levels. To account for the limited temporal resolution of the satellite data, the data were first...

Radar-tracking of low-observable targets such as drones suffers from low detection performance. In these type of applications, it is desirable to avoid data thresholding in order to preserve the weak target signal in the raw sensor data. This thesis considers the Multiple Object Tracking (MOT) problem in the context of radar Track-before-Detect ...

Recently non-image-based data capturing methods such as sensors like RF, ultrasonic or radars, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, etc for People Counting (PC) applications have gained momentum as an alternative to camera-based systems due to the preference for privacy preservation. Among them mm-wave radars are a strong choice for data capture since they consume...

Social cohesion is perceived to be under pressure in the Netherlands, especially in its larger cities. The Covid-19 pandemic has reinforced and deepened the socio-spatial divide between vulnerable urban areas and the rest of the city, which not only affects the residents of the area and of the city, but also starts to affect the cohesion of the...

Machine learning models offer promising potential in precipitation nowcasting. However, a common issue faced by many of these models is the tendency to produce blurry precipitation nowcasts, which are unrealistic. Previous research on the deep learning model - TrajGRU (Shi et al., 2017) indicated that data imbalance in radar images and the...

The traumatic loss of a hand is a horrific experience usually followed by significant psychological, functional and rehabilitation challenges. Even though much progress has been made in the past decades, the prosthetic challenge of restoring the human hand functionality is still far from being achieved. Autonomous prosthetic hands showed...

In this study, we perform human identification using accumulated radar point clouds in an outdoor scene. We employ PointNet as classification network and explore the impact of adding radars' non-spatial features as input, namely doppler velocity and radar cross section (RCS). Furthermore, we encode time as an additional time identity dimension...

According to the World Health Organization, approximately 15 million neonates are born prematurely each year, which is more than 1 in 10 newborns. Premature birth disrupts the normal development of the neonate in the womb, which can result in various complications and health issues, necessitating continuous monitoring of vital signs to assess...
