Abstract

To date, 3-D radar imaging of moving objects in a multipath coordinate space close to antennas remains a technical challenge. In this work, we demonstrate the implementation of such 3-D motion imaging based on a continuous-wave, multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) Doppler radar sensor (DRS). Working with a time-division-multiplex (TDM) scheme, this portable, cost-effective DRS is a bistatic system with one transmitting and one receiving channels, and a radio frequency (RF) switch in each channel toggling between two antennas. Assisted by algorithms specifically derived for the TDM-MIMO architecture, highly sensitive 3-D imaging performed in a multipath indoor environment was experimentally implemented. Numerical simulations and experimental demonstrations verified the effectiveness and accuracy of the proposed approach.
