Projects → Heartbeat Rate
Heart rate measurement can be done without physical contact when you’re applying video processing algorithms. DataArt developed a cross-platform application that does the measurement using a Kinect camera or the camera on your iPhone.
It’s a known fact that the human skin becomes redder when blood pressure is at its maximum (systolic pressure), and less red when the pressure is at its minimum (diastolic pressure). By analyzing the red component of a set of pixels in a video stream over time the app provides reliable results.
