Recently, we came across a BBC article reporting a teenager having seizure was saved by online gamer - 5,000 miles away in Texas, via alerting medical services. Surprisingly, the teenager's parents weren't aware of his condition despite being in the same home.
What it does
Using remote photoplethysmography to measure one's pulse rate using webcam, and alerting a friend/guarding via SMS if major irregularities are detected.
How we built it
We created a React app that implements some openCV libraries in order to control the webcam and detect the user's face to try to detect the heart rate. We deployed onto Google Cloud Engine and made use of StdLib to handle sending SMS messages.
Challenges we ran into
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Cloud deployment, making a React app, using Stdlib, using Figma.
