SAM3 Expertise Areas: Vital Sign Acquisition

SAM3 researchers have explored a number of methods to measure vital signs within the smart home through passive and non-contact means.  These provide an option for the measurement of these vital signs without the need for the use of a device that is worn or directly used by the subject.

Application Areas

  • Video Magnification for the assessment of heart rate, respiration rate and blood pressure
  • Pressure mats for the assessment of respiration rate and other respiratory conditions including cough.
  • Acoustics analysis to assess cough and respiration.
  • Applications of vital sign measurement to assess driver attention
