Zhang, H. (author)
In recent decades, dielectric lens antennas have been more and more adopted and developed for sensing and imaging applications at sub-millimeter (sub-mm) wavelengths because they can achieve high gain while keeping their physical size and weight acceptable at these wavelengths. More recently, as low-loss and low-cost lens materials have become...

This thesis introduces the relevance of radar systems in the realm of human activity recognition (HAR) in Chapter 1. The study touches upon the complex understanding of continuous human activities and the existing challenges and gaps in current methodologies, hinting at the innovative technical approaches that are to be detailed in the following...

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...

This article presents the development of a focal plane array (FPA) for terahertz imaging applications with a near diffraction-limited resolution achieved through a very tight sampling of the focal plane. The antenna array is integrated with direct detectors in a 22-nm CMOS technology and operates from 200 to 600 GHz. The tight sampling of the...

Relative localization (RL) is essential for the successful operation of micro air vehicle (MAV) swarms. Achieving accurate 3-D RL in infrastructure-free and GPS-denied environments with only distance information is a challenging problem that has not been satisfactorily solved. In this work, based on the range-based peer-to-peer RL using the...

In recent years, short-range reliable wireless system with high data rate and low power consumption has drawn sufficient attention and is in great demand in various applications. For biomedical implantable applications such as neural sensing and Brain-computer Interfaces (BCIs), due to the increasing number of sensing channels and elements, not...

Luo, Xiaoyao (author)
This thesis covers two topics. The first one is signal design for accurate Time-of-Arrival estimation using a number of frequency separated signals. Rather than use a full UWB band, we will use sparse subband signals spanning the full band to construct a new virtual UWB signal. To evaluate the performance of the constructed signal, Cramer-Rao...

Wireless ranging measurements have been proposed for enabling multiple Micro Air Vehicles (MAVs) to localize with respect to each other. However, the high-dimensional relative states are weakly observable due to the scalar distance measurement. Hence, the MAVs have degraded relative localization and control performance under unobservable...

Continuous Human Activity Recognition (HAR) in arbitrary directions is investigated in this paper using a network of five spatially distributed pulsed Ultra-Wideband radars. While activities performed continuously and in unconstrained trajectories provide a more realistic and natural scenario for HAR, the network of radar sensors is proposed...

In recent years, implantable neural sensing and Brain-computer Interfaces (BCIs)<br/>have manifested their potential in medical and clinical uses. However, their wide adoptions are impractical without reliable wireless telemetry systems for transmitting recorded neuron activities to external devices.

Ultra-Wideband (UWB) technology became unregulated within the EU in 2007. Most recently, it was integrated into mobile phones in 2019, notably Apply and Samsung adding it to all their newer models. While UWB is characterised as a radio technology with any signal above 500 MHz, it operates within the 6-9 GHz<br/>range in mobile phones. This...

An iterative bias estimation framework is presented that mitigates position-dependent ranging errors often present in ultra-wideband localization systems. State estimation and control are integrated, such that the positioning accuracy improves over iterations. The framework is experimentally evaluated on a quadcopter platform, resulting in...

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...

This article addresses the joint estimation of range, velocity and azimuth for multiple fast-moving targets using (ultra-)wideband (UWB) frequency-modulated continuous-wave (FMCW) radar with a phased array in the presence of Doppler ambiguities. The range migration of moving targets is described with the coupling of the fast-time and slow...

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...

In this thesis, the implementation of a passive, chipless, frequency coded Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID) tag for bedload transport studies is proposed. The proposed tag will be deployed in the semi-arid Río Colorado river, Bolivia with the aim to develop quantitative sediment transport models that relate transport to grain size. The...

A robot swarm of zebros (Dutch: ZEs Benige RObots) is being developed at the TU Delft, with the purpose of forming a large self-deploying sensor network that survey remote locations without the need for any pre-existing infrastructure, or be used for evaluating swarming algorithms in the field. Towards this goal, zebros need to be able to...

A pulsed photoconductive terahertz (THz) source is presented that is able to radiate milliwatt (mW) level average power over a large bandwidth, by exploiting both the optical and electrical properties of photoconductive sources and the ultrawideband properties of connected antenna arrays. An optical system composed of a microlenses array...
