Abstract
Remote monitoring of vital signs (VS) is an emerging technology with a vast number of possible uses from hospital care to the automotive industry and assisting living environments. Radio-frequency (RF) sensing enables the remote and unobtrusive measurement of VS without the need to wear any special device or clothing and under any lighting conditions. A demonstrator of RF vital signs sensing was designed and prototyped based on a continuous wave reflectometer implemented on a Software Defined Radio platform. The sensor operates at 110 GHz. The feasibility of remote respiration and heart rate (HR) monitoring was investigated. The breathing pattern was found to af...
