Hello,

Is anyone working on the use of the Raspberry Pi Camera module as a heart rate sensor?
I am new to using Raspberry Pi. I want to build a non-contact real-time heart rate monitoring system using Raspberry Pi 3 Model B and Pi NoIR camera.

I found two related projects which are:
https://github.com/prouast/heartbeat
https://github.com/thearn/webcam-pulse-detector

Is it possible to build this system using Raspberry Pi? Also, Is it possible to calculate FFTs and FFTs on the Raspberry Pi?

Thanks for your time and consideration.

YES!! It is a very good math engine.
You can take pictures at 30/second. Probably 60/second with lower resolution. There should be a slight change at about 1/sec. (heart rate)
I think this is not easy.
