Radar sensing for human healthcare: Challenges and results

Francesco Fioranelli, Julien Le Kernec

Research output: Chapter in Book/Conference proceedings/Edited volumeConference contributionScientificpeer-review


In this paper, radar sensing in the domain of human healthcare is discussed, specifically looking at the typical applications of human activity classification (including fall detection), gait analysis and gait parameters extraction, and vital signs monitoring such as respiration and heartbeat. A brief overview of open research challenges and trends in this domain are provided, showing that radar sensors and sensing can play a significant role in the domain of human healthcare.
