In this presentation, I will talk about contactless sensors for detecting activities of people as well as estimating their heart rate and breathing rate. I will discuss mainly radar-based sensor but I will also mention video and sonar applications. In the end of the presentation, I will show real data collected in our Lab using different types of radars.
