Abstract: Fall incidents and sustained injuries represent the most dangerous hazard for elderly people. The rapid detection of a fall event can reduce the mortality risk and increases the chance to survive the incident. A variety of fall detection methods have been published in recent scientific literature but they suffer from critical limitations. In this work, a radar-based health monitoring system enabling non-invasive fall detection and tag-less localization in the home environment is presented and discussed. Experimental results demonstrate a success rate of 94.3% in distinguishing fall events from normal movements and a good detection of the target’s absolute distance.
