UWB communication has obvious advantages in the aspect of transmission rate, power consumption and price cost. Therefore, it has become the focus of the academia and industry. For the low power consumption, high multipath resolution and strong penetrating power, UWB radar has great potential in person positioning, object detection and obstacle recognition. This paper takes the advantage of UWB radar’s environmental perception ability and combines it with Gabor transform in the scenes with different obstacle such as los, human body and metal barrier. We extract the UWB radar signal’s Gabor coefficients and combine them with neural network to identify categories and locations.
