On 28th to 30th of June, the International Conference on Modern Circuits and Systems Technologies (MOCAST) on Electronics and Communications took place in Athens, Greece. UNIWA’s team presented the poster “A Dataset for Aftermath Victim Detection Behind Walls or Obstacles Using an UWB Radar Sensor” by Dimitris Uzunidis, Εvangelos Margaritis, Christos Chatzigeorgiou, Charalampos Patrikakis and Stelios Mitilineos. The poster presents how the team employed a commercially available Ultra WideBand (UWB) radar sensor to detect victims behind large obstacles, such as walls and doors. Using this radar, an openly accessible dataset was created with 15 hours of data records for a number of different scenarios, while a novel and of low complexity method  was applied which attained a more than 95% accuracy in victim detection.
