Radar AI system spots people through walls

When rescuing hostages or making arrests in buildings, emergency services usually have an unclear picture of the situation before they enter a room. They often do not know how many people are in the room and where they are exactly. There is a great need to receive more information in advance in order to be able to act actively from the beginning when entering a room.

innoX, the innovation department of BWI GmbH, recognized this need and examined it for technical feasibility within the experiment “Seeing through walls with AI”. BWI GmbH is the federally owned IT system house of the Bundeswehr. In mid-May, the experiment, in which the Fraunhofer Institute for High Frequency Physics and Radar Technology (FHR), the Fraunhofer Institute for Optronics, System Technology and Image Exploitation (IOSB) and the company ATOS were involved in addition to BWI innoX, was successfully completed from the point of view of those carrying out the experiment been. In an interview with S&T, experiment manager Heiko Reiter explains the background, process and details of the project.

The aim of the experiment was to investigate the possibilities of reliably recognizing people behind obstacles, determining their number, position and state of movement, and all of this in real time, if possible, explains the experiment leader. According to him, the experiment, which took place in two phases, involved about a dozen people from the four different institutions.
