Vital signs, such as heart rate (HR), heart rate variability (HRV), respiratory rate (RR), are important indicators for a person's health. Vital signs are traditionally measured with contact sensors, and may be inconvenient and cause discomfort during continuous monitoring... Commercial cameras are promising contact-free sensors, and remote photoplethysmography (rPPG) have been studied to remotely monitor heart rate from face videos. For remote RR measurement, most prior art was based on small periodical motions of chest regions caused by breathing cycles, which are vulnerable to subjects' voluntary movements. This paper explores remote RR measurement based on rPPG obtained from face videos. The paper employs motion compensation, two-phase temporal filtering, and signal pruning to capture signals with high quality. The experimental results demonstrate that the proposed framework can obtain accurate RR results and can provide HR, HRV and RR measurement synergistically in one framework. read more
