  • Because of the mutual interference between multiple stationary humans, distinguishing individuals via the range profile of a single-channel bioradar is difficult. To solve this problem, we used an Ultra-WideBand Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (UWB MIMO) bioradar to compose high-resolution two-dimensional images. These images allow multiple stationary humans to be separated from space. Then, vital signs are enhanced on the basis of the UWB MIMO image sequence, thereby leading to effective suppression of interference. The experimental results demonstrate that the proposed method can compose high-resolution images of multiple stationary humans. Thus, high-performance detection and localization of multiple stationary humans can be expected.
