Kyoto University and Panasonic: New technology for remote measurement of … –

       The Kyoto University and Panasonic announced today that
       a novel technology for the remote measurement of vital signs
       such as heart rate, heartbeat intervals and have developed so on.
       The technology is based on a highly sensitive radar spread spectrum and
       a feature-based algorithm for the heartbeat interval estimation
       and enables you to measure heart rate and intervals in
       Real-time – having to place without having sensors on the body. The
       Measuring accuracy corresponds to the of electrocardiographs.

 This Smart News Release contains multimedia. See full publication here:

       The technology allows the development of “casual-sensing” – ie the
       comfortable collection of data, during their normal humans
       Daily routine pursue. For example, when you get up in the morning or
       in the evening to prepare for the bedtime.

       “The measurement by means of sensors on the body can be uncomfortable and
       be stressful because you for interrupting his daily routine
       needs. “says Hiroyuki Sakai, who worked as a researcher at Panasonic
       is. “Our goal was to develop something that people the
       allowing their body parameters in a casual and stress free
       To measure environment. ”

       The team believes that the additional comfort with the telemetry
       brings to the people an incentive will represent their
       monitor own health, what they are in the long term
       will benefit.

       The system for remote indication consists of spread spectrum radar technology
       with millimeter waves and a unique signal analysis algorithm,
       the body signals can identify.

       “Heartbeats are not the only signals that detects the radar. The
       Body transmitted at any time and at the same time many
       various types of signals – including the breathing and
       Body movements. It is made of a chaotic soup
       Information. “Said Toru Sato, Professor of Computer &
       Communication Technology at the University of Kyoto. “Our algorithm can
       all different from each other. He focuses on the
       Properties of waves, such as heartbeats, the radar signal and
       calculates its intervals. ”

       The team hopes that the telemetry system after another
       Experiments are carried out, in the near future a
       will have practical benefits.

       “Now that we know that the remote measurement of vital parameters possible
       is, we need to expand the measurement capability continues to allow the system to
       People of different ages and in different situations to
       May use. “Concluded Sato.
