Heart Rate Measurement from Video and Its Applications
The ability to remotely measure heart rate from videos without requiring any special setup is beneficial to many applications. In recent years, a number of papers on heart rate (HR) measurement from videos have been proposed. However, these methods typically require the human subject to be stationary and for the illumination to be controlled. In this paper, we propose an HR measurement method that is robust to motion and illumination changes. We show that the method can work in various conditions. Then, we show some application systems using the method that are under development.
