This study aims to experimentally investigate the feasibility of discriminating human motions with the help of micro Doppler features by using radar. In the first phase of the work, the synthetic data is generated through the human walking simulator by V. Chen and different time-frequency transformations are applied on the data and the results of the simulator are compared with field experiments. In the following phase, several field experiments which are in the scope of the simulator are conducted and the experimental data for running, crawling, creeping and walking with the aspect angles of 0 degrees, 30 degrees, 60 degrees are collected. Signal processing steps and micro Doppler processing steps are applied to the collected data and spectrograms are obtained. Lastly, six features, which are torso frequency, bandwidth of the signal, offset of the signal, bandwidth without micro Dopplers, the standard deviation of the signal strength, the period of the arms or legs motions are extracted from the spectrograms and the efficiency of the features in motion classification is compared.

The Application of micro doppler features in target classification
Topuz Alemdaroğlu, Özge; Yıldırım, Nevzat; Koç, Seyit Sencer; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2014)
This study aims to experimentally investigate the feasibility of discriminating human motions with the help of micro Doppler features by using radar. In this work, the human walking simulator by V. Chen is examined and is modified according to requirements of the study. Then, the time-frequency distributions to obtain the spectrograms of human motions are examined and the Wigner Ville Distribution and Short Time Fourier Transform (STFT) are chosen for the application. After the simulation studies, experimen...
A generative model for multi class object recognition and detection
Ulusoy, İlkay (2006-01-01)
In this study, a generative type probabilistic model is proposed for object recognition. This model is trained by weakly labelled images and performs classification and detection at the same time. When test on highly challenging data sets, the model performs good for both tasks (classification and detection).
A novel music algorithm based electromagnetic target recognition method in resonance region for the classification of single and multiple targets
Seçmen, Mustafa; Sayan, Gönül; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2008)
This thesis presents a novel aspect and polarization invariant electromagnetic target recognition technique in resonance region based on use of MUSIC algorithm for the extraction of natural-resonance related target features. In the suggested method, the feature patterns called “MUSIC Spectrum Matrices (MSMs)” are constructed for each candidate target at each reference aspect angle using targets’ scattered data at different late-time intervals. These individual MSMs correspond to maps of targets’ natural-res...
The MUSIC algorithm-based electromagnetic target classification for isolated targets from incomplete frequency domain data
Secmen, Mustafa; Sayan, Gönül (2007-06-15)
This paper investigates the performance of a new electromagnetic target classification method to recognize isolated targets in the presence of scattered frequency domain data which may be severely incomplete at low frequencies. The suggested method utilizes multiple signal classification (MUSIC) algorithm to construct approximate pole location maps of the targets without determining the exact pole values. In this work, this method is validated for small-scale aircraft targets modeled by thin, conducting wir...
