It is possible to notice the quite relevant amplitude of the signal replicas due to clutter, to the point that they can blind the radar device. The effects of the MS and DMF motion filters are shown, respectively, in Figs. 4a and 4b. From the color scale, it is possible to see how the useful signal level reaches higher values, with respect to background noise, when the DMF technique is used. This technique is able to ensure stronger immunity to noise. In Fig. 5, the frequency spectra corresponding to the curves that describe the position of the correlation peaks are shown.
Thanks to its penetration capabilities, the signal generated by an UWB radar equipment can be also used to search for humans, under certain conditions: as an example, it may be adopted to reveal the presence of kidnapped people, to locate people hidden behind walls, or buried under rubble, during search and rescue operations . The problem of detecting cardiac activity through a radar-based approach is addressed in : static reflections, summing up to the useful signal, make it difficult to extract the heart rate, and should be eliminated by means of a processing step, based on the use of a motion filter.
On the other hand, there are some situations in which a contactless monitoring is the only possible solution, such as in the case of patients who have sustained severe burns, for whom it is essential to avoid any contact with the burnt skin . Thanks to its penetration capabilities, the signal generated by an UWB radar equipment can be also used to search for humans, under certain conditions: as an example, it may be adopted to reveal the presence of kidnapped people, to locate people hidden behind walls, or buried under rubble, during search and rescue operations .
