General information

1) Estimate heart rate only by embedded censor with smartphone, and 2) estimate precisely changes in heart rate occurred by changes in walking speed and road inclination. The result sample includes: ‘Walk more slowly. Current heart rate is 106. Workload level is moderate.’

Specific information

We built a heart rate estimation model to study the relationship between the two following data through neural network: 1) Ambulation data collected by smartphone, and 2) heart rate counted by heart rate meter.

Use of Technology
