DEtection of VUlnerable ROad users

In this project, funded by STW, different types of embedded EM-systems were investigated to extend or replace the blind spot mirror of large vehicles. One of the requirements was that the system can detect humans and distinguish them from other objects like trees and lampposts. Therefore, a system was designed, built and tested for the contactless (wireless) detection of heart beat and respiration. The system can also be used for various medical applications.
