Pelliccioni et al. Fig. 4167 ps. 23 m where di represents the distance corresponding to the i-th delay term τi . In Fig. 2a, the received signal rs (t = 120 s, τ ) is represented, affected by noise (S N R = −20 d B). In Fig. 2b), the same scan is shown, correlated by the matched filter r (t = 120 s, τ ). It is possible to see that the correlation peaks are emphasized (due to the strong reduction of the noise impact), thus making it possible to reveal the useful UWB signal echoes. Finally, Fig. 3 m) may be evidenced.

In fact the acceptability of video system in domestic environments is very low for privacy reasons. In this paper, the authors propose a novel approach based on the use of electromagnetic sensing of the respiration activity of a subject. In adjunction to its non contact nature, the use of electromagnetic waves present the advantage respect to the image-based methods to be easily installable at home without the need to have in direct view with the target (some materials are transparent to the electromagnetic waves) and therefore they result to be particularly suited for use in AAL.
