Paper Abstract

In this paper, a novel and comprehensive measurement approach is proposed for the detection and analysis of human motion signature. The approach combines theoretical concepts and tools of micro-Doppler theory, image processing, and human modeling, in a original way. The attention is primarily focused on the description of the most meaningful parameters influencing the accuracy of the obtained signature. The ultimate purpose is to provide a framework through which organizing, comparing, and merging future research activities, ideas and results in the field of human motion signature analysis for security, health and disaster recovery purposes. Some simulation and experimental results underlying the feasibility and effectiveness of the measurement approach are also summarized and analyzed.
