Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

Over the past few years, the use of Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) radar has gained increased attention as a way to mitigate the degredation of micro-Doppler classification performance incurred when the aspect angle approaches 90 degrees. In this work, the efficacy of co-located MIMO radar is compared with that of distributed MIMO. The performance anaylsis is accomplished for three different classification problems: 1) discrimination of a walking group of people from a running group of people; 2) identification of individual human activities, and 3) classification of different types of walking. In the co-located configuration each radar is placed side by side so as to form a line. In the distributed configuration, the radar positions are separated to observe the subjects from different angles. Starting from the cadence velocity diagram (CVD), the Pseudo-Zernike moments based features are extracted because of their robustness with respect to unwanted scalar and angular dependencies. Two different approaches to integrate the features obtained from multi-aspect data are compared: concatenation and principal component analysis (PCA). Results show that a distributed MIMO configuration and use of PCA to fuse multiperspective features yields higher classification performance as compared to a co-located configuration or feature vector concatenation.
