Opensource Virtual Heartrate Monitor

The Opensource Virtual Heartrate Monitor aims to use the near zero cost of deployment provided by a pure software based product deployed at scale mixed with the presence of smart phones and mobile networks in remote and developing areas around the globe. The aim of the project is to take developed and test algorithms optimized for old and low powered mobile devices that have at least a camera. Using the camera an accurate heartrate can be obtained and provided to a Doctor to aid and improve the diagnosis and treatment. The project will investigate the viability of a dual license model where any product that uses the technology and generates a profit pays a license fee that funds the upkeep of the project and enables the service to be provided for free to NGO's, research or any medical service that does not generate a profit. This initiative is being implemented to enable free digital medical care services for the 10% of people living on less than 2 dollars a day.
