Estimating Carotid Pulse and Breathing Rate from Near-infrared Video of the Neck

24 May 2018Weixuan ChenJavier HernandezRosalind W. Picard

Objective: Non-contact physiological measurement is a growing research area that allows capturing vital signs such as heart rate (HR) and breathing rate (BR) comfortably and unobtrusively with remote devices. However, most of the approaches work only in bright environments in which subtle photoplethysmographic and ballistocardiographic signals can be easily analyzed and/or require expensive and custom hardware to perform the measurements...
