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

In this paper a multi-static ambiguity function (AF) based on the Kullback directed divergence (KDD) and a distributed multiple-input and multiple-output radar system (DMRS) framework is introduced. Additionally a mathematical analysis is used to derive the AF in terms of signal-to-noise ratios (SNRs) and matched filter outputs. This method manages to extract an upper bound and properly define an AF bounded from 0 to 1. Moreover, this method leads in avoidance of large matrices inversions allowing less complex and more accurate computations. Finally the performance of the proposed method in localisation problems is assessed by comparing the proposed AF with the squared summation of the matched filter outputs at each receiver at different SNR scenarios.
