Abstract: An emerging topic in the field of elderly care is the determination and tracking of vital parameters, such as the heart rate. This parameter provides important information about a person’s current health status. Within the last years, various research focussed on this topic. The recognition of vital parameters is increasingly relevant for our ageing society. This paper presents a method to remotely determine the human heart rate with a camera. At this point, we suggest to use independent component analysis (ICA) and adaptive filtering for a robust detection. In our processing chain, we used different image processing techniques, e. g. face detection, and signal processing techniques, e. g. FFT and bandpass filtering, in this study. An evaluation with several probands, illuminations, frame rates and different heart rate levels showed that we could achieve a mean error of 4.36 BPM, which corresponds to CAND of 94.45 %, and a speed of 35 fps.
