Micro-Doppler Effect in Radar
Mechanical vibration or rotation of a target or structures on the target may induce additional frequency modulations on the returned radar signal which generate sidebands about the targetí»s Doppler frequency, called the micro-Doppler effect. Micro-Doppler signatures enable useful properties of the target to be identified. In this research project, we develop the mathematics of the mico-Doppler signatures in radar using Lie group theory, and represent the motion features with time-frequency analysis. The simulation and real experimental results confirmed that the mathematical analysis is valid. This work broadens the traditional motion representation from visual sensing.
