Paper Abstract

This paper describes experiments and analysis of seismic signals in addressing the problem of personnel detection for indoor surveillance. Data was collected using geophones to detect footsteps from walking and running in indoor environments such as hallways. Our analysis of the data shows the significant presence of nonlinearity, when tested using the surrogate data method. This necessitates the need for novel detector designs that are not based on linearity assumptions. We present one such method based on empirical mode decomposition (EMD) and functional data analysis (FDA) and evaluate its applicability on our collected dataset.
