Abstract

A vibration sensor based on the use of a Software-Defined Radio (SDR) platform isadopted in this work to provide a contactless and multipurpose solution for low-cost real-timevibrations monitoring. In order to test the vibration detection ability of the proposed non-contactmethod, a 1 GHz Doppler radar sensor is simulated and successfully assessed on targets at variousdistances, with various oscillation frequencies and amplitudes. Furthermore, an SDR Dopplerplatform is practically realized, and preliminary experimental validations on a device able toproduce a harmonic motion are illustrated to prove the effectiveness of the proposed approach.
