Improvements in Remote Cardio-Pulmonary Measurement Using a Five Band Digital Camera

Daniel McDuff, Sarah Gontarek and Rosalind W. Picard, MIT Media Lab
Volume 61, Issue 10, Page: 2593-2601
Remote measurement of the blood volume pulse via photoplethysmography (PPG) using digital cameras and ambient light has great potential for healthcare and affective computing. However, traditional RGB cameras have limited frequency resolution, they only capture information across three relatively broad … Read more

About This Journal

The IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Engineering is a leading research journal in the field of biomedical engineering and is widely disseminated throughout the world. The journal was first published in 1953; one of the first devoted to engineering in medicine and biology. The Journal publishes original articles of highest quality in any areas of biomedical engineering. The journal welcomes original work that has made major advancements in a field instead of incremental improvement. Full manuscripts with novel methods or study designs with convincing experimental results are welcome. Exceptional concepts or novel methods with limited results may also be considered. The journal publishes selected review articles written by international authorities. Unsolicited authors should inquire with editorial office before submitting a review article.

The emphasis of the journal is to publish a comprehensive piece of excellent science that engineering medicine and biology. Topics include, but are not limited, to the following: biomedical signal processing, biomedical imaging and image processing, bioinstrumentation, biosensors, bio-micro/nano technology, bioinformatics and computational biology, biomedical modeling and computing, cardiovascular engineering, neural and rehabilitation engineering, cellular and tissue engineering and biomaterials, biomechanics, robotics, therapeutic and diagnostic systems, devices and technologies, clinical engineering, healthcare information systems and telemedicine, and emerging topics in biomedical engineering.
