Abstract:
In this paper, a radar based approach for pedestrian detection and tracking is presented. The approach utilizes automotive radar for tracking the targets and a separate Doppler radar to provide extra information about the classes of the targets. The classification of objects as humans is based on analysis of the Doppler spectrum of targets as well as the speed of the targets gained through the tracking process. The presented method is able to make a difference between a non-human target and a human target if the human target is moving. At the moment the measurement platform needs to be stationary or move at very low speed.
