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.

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
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.
