Algorithms for monitoring heart rate and respiratory rate from the video of a user’s face 780 360 IEEE Journal of Translational Engineering in Health and Medicine (JTEHM)

  Abstract Smartphone cameras can measure heart rate (HR) by detecting pulsatile photoplethysmographic (iPPG) signals from post-processing the video of a subject’s face. The iPPG signal is often derived from…
