UBFC-rPPG (Univ. Bourgogne Franche-Comté Remote PhotoPlethysmoGraphy)

Introduced by Bobbia et al. in Unsupervised skin tissue segmentation for remote photoplethysmography

We introduce here a new database called UBFC-rPPG (stands for Univ. Bourgogne Franche-Comté Remote PhotoPlethysmoGraphy) comprising two datasets that are focused specifically on rPPG analysis. The UBFC-RPPG database was created using a custom C++ application for video acquisition with a simple low cost webcam (Logitech C920 HD Pro) at 30fps with a resolution of 640x480 in uncompressed 8-bit RGB format. A CMS50E transmissive pulse oximeter was used to obtain the ground truth PPG data comprising the PPG waveform as well as the PPG heart rates. During the recording, the subject sits in front of the camera (about 1m away from the camera) with his/her face visible. All experiments are conducted indoors with a varying amount of sunlight and indoor illumination. The link to download the complete video dataset is available on request. A basic Matlab implementation can also be provided to read ground truth data acquired with a pulse oximeter.
