User position and breathing rate measurement using pulse radar

Investor: Nielsen

The team: principal investigator Andrej Košir, researcher Nejc Kozjek

The study focused on evaluating accuracy of presence, distance and respiration rate of a person. Two different radars from the same manufacturer (Novelda) were used: XeThru X4M200 for respiration and XeThru X4M300 for distance measurement and presence. In order to assure the interpretability of the results of the study, we designed experiments with the listed evaluations and implemented an experimental environment which is mimicking users’ living room.

The goal of this project was to evaluate accuracy of presence, evaluate the accuracy of distance measurements in several aspects, and evaluate the accuracy of respiration rate measurement.
