Abstract: A CMOS camera-based imaging photoplethysmography (PPG) system has been previously demonstrated for the contactless measurement of skin blood perfusion over a wide tissue area. An improved system with a more sensitive CCD camera and a multi-wavelength RCLED ring light source was developed to measure blood perfusion from the human face. The signals acquired by the PPG imaging system were compared to signals captured concurrently from a conventional PPG finger probe. Experimental results from eight subjects demonstrate that the camera-based PPG imaging technique is able to measure pulse rate and blood perfusion.
