Heart rate measurement from webcam or video

Project description



Face detection and tracking are used to observe the tiny variations in skin tone that result from the increased blood flow after a heart beat. By averaging, filtering and Fourier-transforming these variations the heart rate is estimated and graphed.

Multiple persons in the scene are analysed simultaneously.
