Hyperbolic localization measures the time difference of arrivals (TDOAs) of signals to determine the location of a wireless source or receiver. Traditional methods depend on precise clock synchronization between nodes so that time measurements from independent devices can be meaningfully compared. Imperfect synchronization is often the dominant...

The use of micro air vehicles (MAV) is becoming increasingly mainstream and with them their applications have become more demanding across the board. The application of MAV’s in large GNSS-denied environments often asks for a distributed and scalable localisation system with minimal reliance on static localisation hardware. In this research a...

In the Roadmap of 2025, EURO NCAP has announced that it will reward car manufacturers that include Child Presence Detection (CPD) technologies in their vehicles starting from 2022. Additionally, seat belt detectors are currently based on pressure sensors which can be falsely triggered with large objects placed on the seats. By basing the...

This research aims to develop a contactless, radar-based sleep apnea detection method. A novel identification approach for this is proposed, based on the envelope of UWB radar spectrograms and machine learning. The envelope of the spectrogram is extracted by an image-based method, followed by signal smoothing via variational mode decomposition ...

Abstract—Ultra-wideband (UWB) ranging is a very suitable method for indoor localisation of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). Current solutions of UWB ranging however either focus on achieving a high accuracy or focus on scalability. In this research a positioning algorithm for UAVs is presented that combines high accuracy performance with a high...

Performing joint tracking and classification is the ultimate goal for many radar-based applications. For example, in indoor monitoring scenario, it is important to know the target's position as well as the related activities performed by that target. However, the literature often treats the joint problem independently due to its complexity. As a...

The continuous improvement and miniaturisation of elements in drones have been essential for making flapping-wing drones a reality. This thesis presents an integral approach for accurate indoor position control and estimation on flapping-wing drones. The approach considers three main aspects to enhance transient response of the drone. The first...

Many wheelchair users actively engage in wheelchair sports, for instance in the Paralympics. Trainers increasingly use the developments in sports technology for analysis. But wheelchair athletes do not benefit as much from these developments. A wheelchair can, for instance, disturb signal transmission. Recently, a set of studies describe the...

In this thesis signal processing techniques for the Ultra-wide-band impulse radar (UWB-IR) radar are dis-cussed. To context wherein these algorithms are used is in a car, with the aim of detecting a child left behind in the car. This thesis also touches on algorithms to obtain vital information of the child inside the car. To this end a...

This thesis analyses different radar systems for sensing chest movement to detect human presence inside a car. The detection in this thesis is limited to sensing breathing rate, although heartbeat detection is considered a possibility. A comparison is made between CW-, FMCW-, pulsed- and UWB pulsed radar. UWB pulsed radar was chosen to be a...

The joint Doppler and Direction-of-Arrival (DOA) estimation of moving targets using an (Ultra-)Wideband (UWB) frequency modulated continuous-wave (FMCW) antenna array radar is investigated. Besides the well-known range migration problem, another concern for wideband signals is the DOA estimation problem. For the first time, both problems are...

Mankind becomes ever more reliant on wireless technology like mobile communications, navigation and radar. This development has resulted in more sensitive receivers, but this increased sensitivity also has increased the susceptibility of these receivers to interference from external sources. One of these sources that is known to disrupt...

Separating images of multiple moving extended-targets by means of ultra-wideband (UWB) frequency-modulated-continuous-wave (FMCW) radar is investigated. The difference in motion of closely-spaced extended targets is used to separate and image them when their radar signatures overlap in the range-azimuth domain. A novel auto-focusing criterion...

The problem of designing UWB pulses which meet specific spectrum requirements is usually treated by filtering common pulses such as Gaussian doublets, modified Hermite polynomials and wavelets. When there is the need to have a number of orthogonal pulses (e.g., in a multiuser scenario), a naive approach is to filter all the members of an...

While there are many technologies and electronic systems used to detect the human vital signs by monitoring the heart beat rate & respiration rate, all these systems rely on physical contact with the human body. Furthermore, each measuring system can only be used for a single person thus increasing the cost and complexity of integrated...

The expansion of microwave imaging applications in various fields proposes increasingly higher requirements (including spatial resolution, dynamic range, and signal-to-noise ratio) for microwave imaging systems. To achieve high-quality imaging, microwave imaging systems generally exploit spatial-, frequency- and polarization-diversities to probe...

In this communication, a novel approach to rotated antenna array topology design is proposed for fully polarimetric short-range imaging. The rotated antenna array proposed acquires two co-pol and one cross-pol signals in terms of the “local” polarization basis by means of three antenna pairs. Then, the fully polarimetric signals in a global...
