Ambient Respiratory Rate Detection Using Capacitive Sensors Inside Seats
The purpose of this research is to develop an application, to measure the human respiratory rate using capacitive sensors while seated. If the respiratory rate could be filtered out, it would provide a way to monitor the health status in daily life, and can also be used to raise alerts or taking actions in case of measuring abnormal respiratory rate. The sensors could be integrated in daily life, like car seats, chairs and sofas but also could serve as medical instruments in hospitals to measure respiratory rate ambiently.
