Compact UWB Indoor and Through-Wall Radar with Precise Ranging and Tracking
Journal article, 2012

Ultrawideband (UWB) technology has many advantages compared to its narrowband counterpart in many applications. We present a new compact low-cost UWB radar for indoor and through-wall scenario. The focus of the paper is on the development of the signal processing algorithms for ranging and tracking, taking into account the particular properties of the UWB CMOS transceiver and the radiation characteristics of the antennas. Theoretical analysis for the algorithms and their evaluations by measurements are presented in the paper. The ranging resolution of this UWB radar has achieved 1-2 mm RMS accuracy for a moving target in indoor environment over a short range, and Kalman tracking algorithm functions well for the through-wall detection.
