Abstract: This paper presents a method for measuring the heart rate (HR) of a human face and does not require any costly medical equipment. The video sequences are captured with a camera attached to Smart phones. In this paper, we have attempted to measure the HRs of a group of people using red, green and blue signals in the video sequence. In addition, we have repeated the experiment on various parts of the human body. The results reveal that the forehead and checks are more suitable for the measurement purpose.
