A Novel Algorithm for Remote Photoplethysmography: Spatial Subspace Rotation
Wenjin Wang, Sander Stuijk, and Gerard de Haan, Eindhoven University of Technology, Philips Research, The Netherlands In this paper, we propose a conceptually novel algorithm, namely “Spatial Subspace Rotation” (2SR), that improves the robustness of remote photoplethysmography. Based on the assumption of... Read more
