Improved UWB Radar Signal Processing 25 Fig. 1 Reference UWB radar system architecture 2 Radar System The reference model for the radar system considered in this paper is shown in Fig. 1. The computer program developed to simulate the system involves the generation, every Tr p seconds, of UWB pulses which are reflected at a distance d from the transmitter (corresponding to the position of the patient’s thoracic surface with respect to the radar sensor), and a receiver block that processes returning echoes.

In [7] a model for the development of context awareness applications using NFC is presented. As an example, the authors presented an application in which the user in emergency situation could ask for help in an intuitive way, just by touching with the NFC smartphone an image with a tag associated, for example a picture of an ambulance. In [8] the authors proposed an NFC-enabled medical devices to automatically collect clinical data. The doctor touches his NFC card to launch the application installed on the mobile phone.

75 mm. 125 mm will not be revealed. It is evident that the very small movements of the thoracic surface due to heartbeat are very difficult to reveal, unless a very heavy sampling processing in the fast time domain is used. On the other hand, the radar capability of distinguishing among different objects depends on the time duration of the pulses used. The waveform selected for the transmitted signal is a Gaussian monocycle: −τ 2 p(τ ) = −C · τ · e 2σ 2 , σ = Tp 2π (3) √ When the constant value C equals e/σ , the maximum value of the Gaussian monocycle waveform is one; T p is the pulse duration and it affects, together with the propagation speed ν p , the spatial resolution of the radar, according to the following equation: Dsr = ν p T p /2 (4) Very short pulses may allow to detect and discriminate reflections originating from objects spatially close to each other.
