Distance localization of the moving object by applying the Karhunen–Loeve transform to ultra-wideband impulse signals



The possibility of applying the first principal component of the Karhunen–Loeve transform to localize reflections from a moving object on the time axis by sondaging with an ultra-wideband locator is studied.
