Overview

The book covers the theoretical basis of UWB sensors, implementations issues, and applications. It bridges the knowledge and communication gap between UWB sensor designers and appliers working in radar communications systems, civil engineering, biotechnology, medical engineering, robotic, mechanical engineering, safety and homeland security.

The objective of this book is to introduce the reader into some aspects of ultra-wideband (UWB) sensing. Such sensors use very weak and harmless electromagnetic sounding waves to “explore” their surroundings. Sensor principles using electromagnetic waves are not new and are in use for many years. But they are typically based on narrowband signals. In contrast to that, the specific of UWB-sensors is to be seen in the fact that they apply sounding signals of a very large bandwidth whereat bandwidth and centre frequency are of the same order.
