Workshop 9 : Millimeter Wave Radar and Edge Intelligent Signal Processing
Title: Edge Intelligent Sensing Radar and Its Applications

Keywords: Millimeter Wave Radar, Edge Intelligence, People Detection and Counting, Hand Gesture Recognition, Fall Detection, Human Vital Sensing, Human Sleep Monitoring, Human Activity Recognition, Vehicle Detection and Counting, Vehicle Speed Estimation, Vehicle Classification

Summary:With the development of smart city, smart medical treatment, smart home, smart building, smart security, intelligent transportation, and human-computer interaction, etc., the basic data of the presence, counting, quantity, location, speed, vital signs, activities of people and vehicles are of great significance. During the past decades, different sensors are used to obtain the above basic data, e.g., camera, radio-frequency identification, Wi-Fi, passive infrared, thermal imaging, ultrasonic sensor, laser, and so on. Different from the above sensors, radar sensing with edge intelligence techniques is receiving increased interest from both academic and industrial fields because of their advanced performance, e.g., strong robustness to all-day and all-weather conditions, great sensitivity to moving objects, the capability of sensing through the obstacles and free of privacy problem. This workshop aims to serve as a key platform to showcase and disseminate the latest progress and breakthrough in the area of edge intelligent sensing radar and its applications. Its topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
  • people detection and counting
  • hand gesture recognition
  • human fall detection
  • human vital sensing
  • human sleep monitoring
  • human activity recognition
  • vehicle detection and counting
  • vehicle speed estimation
  • vehicle classification
  • radar-communication integration
