Radars are used in automobiles for various functionalities, starting from the obstacle alarm during vehicle reversing to advanced functionalities like autonomous driving. A practical method for monitoring people inside a vehicle for various applications (surveillance, safety, etc.) could be built using Radar. This paper presents the embedded implementation of a vital sign sensing algorithm using the radar signal processing (RSP) technique. MEX (MATLAB executable) interface is performed with the embedded C code of the vital sign sensing algorithm generated for validating the results with the RSP technique. Finally, Unit testing is performed on the developed embedded C code of the vital sign sensing algorithm to remove the dead codes and to verify whether all branches and statements in a developed algorithm are working accordingly. The embedded C code results were found to be matching precisely with the RSP technique. With the help of obtained results, we can differentiate between an adult and a baby inside a vehicle.
