Hi everyone.
I used windows recorder to record .wav file for doing ranging radar experiment.
I used above code for processing .wav file to ranging radar.
however I wanna making real-time FMCW radar.
so how can I modify the above matlab code?
I think that I have to get an real-time wave data from antenna.
I'll wait anyone's greatful help.

You may want to take a look at this example to get some idea on how to process real time data.
