Summary

The second part of the book begins with chapter eight, Short-range tracking of moving targets by handheld UWB radar system by Dušan Kocur, and Jana Rovňáková from Technical University of Košice, Slovak Republic. The chapter gives a description of the signal processing methods for a handheld UWB radar system applied for a short-range detection and tracking of moving persons. It explains the importance of the particular phases and provides an overview of methods applied within them. The performance of the selected methods is illustrated by the results of processing of radar signals obtained by the M-sequence UWB radar system applied for tracking of people moving behind walls.
