Project Title: Ultra-Wideband Radar Technology for Non-Destructive Object Scanning
Hosting Institution: LSCM R&D Centre (LSCM)
Abstract: It is common for small-/medium-sized local factories and warehouses to perform
goods packaging manually. Some SMEs will carry out quality control, such as
weighing the final product packages and comparing them with the well-packed
counterpart, to identify potential mis-packed goods. Weighing method may
identify missing parts but not be able to detect wrong parts with same weight as
the correct ones.
This project aims to study the feasibility of using ultra-wideband radar technology
to develop a non-destructive object scanning prototype. By correlating changes of
different radar output waveforms, it is possible to identify non-standard scanned
objects for screening purpose.
This solution will provide a low-cost non-destructive alternative for local SMEs in
different operating environments such as logistics warehouses. For instance, the
quality control unit may use this prototype to compare the testing package with
the standard reference package in order to identify any potential abnormal
package for further re-checking. The potential of this proposed technology can be
integrated to become a multi-sensing scanning solution for various industrial
