Can Radar Remote Life Sensing Technology Help to Combat COVID-19?
Preprints are manuscripts made publicly available before they have been submitted for formal peer review and publication. They might contain new research findings or data. Preprints can be a draft or final version of an author's research but must not have been accepted for publication at the time of submission.
This article will provide an in-depth discussion about potential scopes of this unobtrusive respiration sensing technology to combat the COVID-19 pandemic. It will focus on several application areas of this sensor technology which can be beneficial and interesting to combat this pandemic. First, respiration sensing technology by Radar in a home setting can help to understand the risk factor of patients so that emergency response can be faster. Radar-based occupancy sensing and continuous identity authentication technology can also help to implement lock-down restrictions more strictly so that the spread of the virus can be reduced. Since this unobtrusive sensor does not require any physical contact to provide accurate respiratory measurement, this sensing solution is intrinsically hygienic which also provides additional protection against the spread of infection and disease. Furthermore, this radar sensor can be installed at homes, hospitals, factories, airports, public transports, and borders to cut down the risk of exposure for both medical and non-medical professionals.
