Today's radar locates and tracks aircraft, measures the speed of fastballs and helps catch “lead foots.” Most radar gather information from objects. However, researchers at the Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) are exploring radar's ability to measure physiological data in humans. The new radar measures tiny movements of the human body caused by respiration and the beating heart.
