  4. The potentials of automotive radar for autonomous driving have not been fully exploited due to the difficulty of extracting targets' information from the radar signals and the lack of radar datasets. In this paper, a novel signal processing pipeline is proposed to address the max ambiguous velocity reduction issue introduced by staggered time division multiplexing (TDM) scheme of high resolution imaging radar system with a large number of transmit antennas. A dataset of 1,410 synchronized frames (stereo cameras, LiDAR, radar) with three classes, i.e., bus, car, and people, is constructed from field experiments. Next, we implement a vanilla SpectraNet and show its promising performance on moving object detection and classification with a mean average precision (mAP) of 81.9% at an intersection over union (IoU) of 0.5.

  7. Abstract Falls are among the most common cause of decreased mobility and independence in older adults and rank as one of the most severe public health problems with frequent fatal consequences. In the present study, gait characteristics from 171 community-dwelling older adults were evaluated to determine their predictive ability for future falls using a wearable system. Participants wore a wearable sensor (inertial measurement unit, IMU) affixed to the sternum and performed a 10-m walking test. Measures of gait variability, complexity, and smoothness were extracted from each participant, and prospective fall incidence was evaluated over the following 6-months. Gait parameters were refined to better represent features for a random forest classifier for the fall-risk classification utilizing three experiments. The results show that the best-trained model for faller classification used both linear and nonlinear gait parameters and achieved an overall 81.6 ± 0.7% accuracy, 86.7 ± 0.5% sensitivity, 80.3 ± 0.2% specificity in the blind test. These findings augment the wearable sensor's potential as an ambulatory fall risk identification tool in community-dwelling settings. Furthermore, they highlight the importance of gait features that rely less on event detection methods, and more on time series analysis techniques. Fall prevention is a critical component in older individuals’ healthcare, and simple models based on gait-related tasks and a wearable IMU sensor can determine the risk of future falls.
