  • Denver IEEE Computer Society Guest Lecturer
  • Phd Student, Department of Electrical Engineering, University of Tennessee
  • Graduate Research Assistant

Chandler J. Bauder is a graduate student currently pursuing his Ph.D. in electrical engineering at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville TN. Chandler Bauder also received the B.S. degree (summa cum laude) in electrical engineering from the University of Tennessee. During Mr. Bauder’s undergraduate work he was a part of the Chancellor’s Honors Program at the University of Tennessee Knoxville. In 2017, Mr. Bauder was awarded the Gonzalez Family Award for Outstanding EE Junior. In 2018, Mr. Bauder has also been awarded the Chancellor’s Award for Extraordinary Academic Achievement, in 2019 and 2020 the Chancellor’s Award for Extraordinary Professional Promise. Mr. Bauder has been working as a Graduate Research Assistant in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the University of Tennessee Knoxville, since 2018. There Mr. Bauder has worked on various projects involving ground penetrating radar, microstrip filter design, radar and camera signal processing for vital sign detection, and multi-factor breakdown simulation of RF components. In May 2021, Mr. Bauder began working as an intern at the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory Radar Division’s Advanced Concepts Group on a project involving microwave power beaming. Mr. Bauder is also a proud Graduate Student Member within the IEEE.

Presentation: Using mm-Wave Radar for Non-Contact Heart Rate Monitoring

Abstract: Extracting accurate heart rate estimates of human subjects from a distance in high-noise scenarios using radar is a common problem. Often, frequency components from sources such as movement and vital signs from other subjects can overpower the weak reflected signal of the heart. In this study, we propose a signal-processing scheme using an Adaptive Multi-Trace Carving algorithm (AMTC) to accurately detect the heart rate signal over time in non-ideal scenarios using a mm-wave radar. In our initial proof-of-concept results, we show a low heart rate estimation mean absolute error (MAE) of 3 bpm for a single subject marching in place and less than 4.5 bpm for a scenario of two human subjects at the same distance from the radar.
