Abstract

This paper presents a physiological monitoring system for assistive robots using a thermal camera. It is based on the detection of subtle changes in temperature observed on different parts of the face. First, we segment and estimate these face regions on thermal images. Then, by applying Fourier analysis on temperature data, we estimate respiration and heartbeat rate. This physiological monitoring system has been integrated in an assistive robot for elderly people at home, as part of the ENRICHME project. Its performance has been evaluated on a new thermal dataset for physiological monitoring, which is made publicly available for research purposes.
