Backscatter radar cross-section of pedestrian

The phased.BackscatterPedestrian creates an object that simulates signals reflected from a walking
pedestrian. The pedestrian walking model coordinates the motion 16 body segments to simulate
natural motion. The model also simulates the radar reflectivity of each body segment. From
this model, you can obtain the position and velocity of each segment and the total
backscattered radiation as the body moves. To obtain the motion, call the `move`

. To obtain
the reflected signal, call `reflect`

.

`pedestrian = phased.BackscatterPedestrian`

pedestrian = phased.BackscatterPedestrian(Name,Value,...)

creates a pedestrian target model object, `pedestrian`

= phased.BackscatterPedestrian`pedestrian`

. The pedestrian
model includes 16 body segments – left and right feet, left and right lower legs, left and
right upper legs, left and right hip, left and right lower arms, left and right upper arms,
left and right shoulders, neck, and head.

creates a pedestrian object, `pedestrian`

= phased.BackscatterPedestrian(Name,Value,...)`pedestrian`

, with each specified property
`Name`

set to the specified `Value`

. You can specify
additional name-value pair arguments in any order as
(`Name1`

,`Value1`

,...,`NameN`

,`ValueN`

).
Any unspecified properties take default values. For
example,

pedestrian = phased.BackscatterPedestrian( ... 'Height',2,'WalkingSpeed',0.5, ... 'InitialPosition',[0;0;0],'InitialHeading',90);
