Remote health monitoring is the newest technology which is being researched and developed for patient safety. The use of this technology is growing rapidly in health services.
In this course we are going to create a Remote Heart Rate Monitoring System. By using a pulse sensor connected to Raspberry Pi we will send heart rate data to both a mobile phone and laptop via WIFI using VNC software.
VNC is a graphical desktop – sharing system that uses the Remote Frame Buffer Protocol (RFB) to remotely control another computer.
The following diagram shows the concept of the project.
In this project, a device is used to detect the heart rate. The device is connected to the Wi-Fi network. A laptop and a mobile phone are also connected to the same network.
- Raspberry Pi 3
- Pulse Sensor
- Adafruit 1085 ADS1115 16-Bit ADC – 4 Channel with Programmable Gain Amplifier – Analogue to Digital Converter
- Micro SD card
- Breadboard and Jump Wires
