In this paper a novel feature extraction technique for micro-Doppler classification and its real time implementation using SVM on an embedded low-cost DSP are presented. The effectiveness of the proposed technique is improved through the exploitation of the outlier rejection capabilities of the Robust PCA in place of the classic PCA.
