Personnel Recognition based on Microdoppler signatures
A paper presenting results on personnel recognition based on micro-Doppler signatures collected by multistatic radar has been published as a featured contribution in the latest issue of Electronic Letters (volume 51, issue 25). This research work is being carried out by Research Associates Dr Francesco Fioranelli and Dr Matthew Ritchie, with Prof Hugh Griffiths, and it uses the multistatic radar system NetRAD developed here at UCL. The work shows highly promising results in the use of features to recognise different people from their individual walking gait, which can be successfully captured by radar sensors and analysed. Potential applications include recognising individuals and in determining whether or not they may be armed.
