Pulse Detection


You could track the user’s feelings based on pulse detection using an inexpensive camera—all in real-time?

Emotion is relatively easy to track from expression, but how valuable would it be to detect an increased heart rate from less obvious facial changes—while using practically any camera?

SoftServe is already exploring the possibilities of remote pulse monitoring software, providing accuracy that rivals state-of-the-art wearables. Our AI-powered optical solution tracks micro-color changes on the user’s forehead area with the help of a web camera to enable real-time, contactless pulse detection.
