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.

The MMSE-HR benchmark consists of a dataset of 102 videos from 40 subjects recorded at 1040x1392 raw resolution at 25fps. During the recordings, various stimuli such as videos, sounds, and smells are introduced to induce different emotional states in the subjects. The ground truth waveform for MMSE-HR is the blood pressure signal sampled at 1000Hz. The dataset contains a diverse distribution of skin colors in the Fitzpatrick scale (II=8, III=11, IV=17, V+VI=4).

VIPL-HR database is a database for remote heart rate (HR) estimation from face videos under less-constrained situations. It contains 2,378 visible light videos (VIS) and 752 near-infrared (NIR) videos of 107 subjects. Nine different conditions, including various head movements and illumination conditions are taken into consideration. All the videos are recorded using Logitech C310, RealSense F200 and the front camera of HUAWEI P9 smartphone, and the ground-truth HR is recorded using a CONTEC CMS60C BVP sensor (a FDA approved device).

Over the past few years a number of research groups have made rapid advances in remote PPG methods for estimating heart rate from digital video and obtained impressive results. How these various methods compare in naturalistic conditions, where spontaneous behavior, facial expressions, and illumination changes are present, is relatively unknown. To enable comparisons among alternative methods, the Vision for Vitals dataset was introduced. It is a novel dataset containing high-resolution videos time-locked with varied physiological signals from a diverse population.

BUAA-MIHR dataset is a remote photoplethysmography (rPPG) dataset. BUAA-MIHR dataset for evaluation of remote photoplethysmography pipeline under multi-illumination situations. We recruited 15 healthy subjects (12 male, 3 female, 18 to 30 years old) in this experiment and a total number of 165 video sequences were recorded under various illuminations. The experiments were conducted in a darkroom in order to isolate from ambient light.

the MTHS dataset contains 30Hz PPG signals obtained from 62 patients, including 35 men and 27 women. The ground truth data includes heart rate and oxygen saturation levels sampled at 1Hz. The HR and SPo2 measurement is obtained using a pulse oximeter (M70). An iPhone 5s was used to obtain the ppg recordings at 30 fps.
