New method to help Telehealth

news
A team of University of Washington has invented a method which will record a person's pulse and breathing  rate from a real-time video of their face using the camera on their smartphone or computer. The researchers presented this state-of-the-art system in December at the Neural Information Processing Systems conference.The team is now suggesting  a better system to measure these physiological signals. This system is less likely to be tripped up by several cameras, lighting conditions or facial features, such as skin color. The researchers will present these findings on  April 8 at the ACM Conference on Health, Interference, and Learning. वाशिंगटन विश्वविद्यालय द्वारा विकसित नई प्रणाली पल्स, श्वास दर को मापेगीवाशिंगटन विश्वविद्यालय की टीम द्वारा विकसित की गई नई विधि पल्स, श्वास दर को मापने के लिए डिवाइस कैमरों का उपयोग…
