Raspberry Pi Camera as a heart rate sensor

Fri May 29, 2015 12:09 pm

Is anyone working on use of the Raspberry Pi Camera module as a pulse rate sensor as per https://github.com/thearn/webcam-pulse-detector?

I appreciate that measuring a pulse rate is probably Medical Device territory but it strikes me that since this method requires FFTs and FFTs can be calculated on the Raspi GPU this could be a useful combination.

I have built a simple Raspberry Pi + Pi NoIR camera based system for non-contact real-time heart rate and respiration rate monitoring.
I did not use the github project that you mentioned though.
