Ultra-wideband (UWB) technology provides a convenient approach for remote biomedical sensing and vital signs monitoring in humans. In this paper, a specific algorithm is proposed to improve the ability of heart rate (HR) detection. Unlike previous methods for remote HR detection, the proposed method provides an adaptive filter based on respiration and heart rate parameters obtained from UWB waveforms. The algorithm is capable of detecting heart rate by changing the adaptive filter parameters accordingly. The proposed method is employed on real life data collected by UWB transceiver. According to experiments, it is concluded that the proposed technique is able to handle remote detection of different heart rates accurately.
