FW3: Optical Heart Rate Monitoring: System Design for Wearable Consumer and Medical Devices

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

This seminar will discuss the basic principles of photoplethysmography (PPG), the physiology involved and methods for measurement. Attendees considering a new wearable design will gain insights on the system design trade-offs, with real data backed by simulations, whereas those interested in low-power wearables will learn simulation and electronics design techniques for extending the life of their product. Engineers interested in physiological monitoring will benefit from this in-depth technical tutorial of the entire opto-electrical system for heart rate and pulse oximetry.
