In non-contact vital sign monitoring using radar, radar signal distorted by the surrounding unspecified factors is unsuitable for monitoring vital signs. In order to monitor vital signs accurately, it is essential to compensate for distortion of radar signals caused by surrounding environmental factors. In this paper, we propose a driver vital signal compensation method in driving situations, including the driver’s movements using a frequency-modulated continuous-wave (FMCW) radar. Driver’s movement is quantified from the radar signal and used to set a distortion signal compensation index to compensate for the signal distortion induced in the driving situation that the driver’s movement occurs. The experimental results show that the respiration rate estimated from the radar signal compensated through the proposed method is similar to the actual respiration rate than from the signal before calibration. These results confirm the possibility of using the proposed method in a non-statistic situation and effectiveness in estimating respiration rate reflecting human movement in monitoring vital signs using FMCW radar.
