Contactless Sensor Product Validation Study - COVID-19

COVID-19 Research Area(s): Diagnostics, Genomics & Transmission Dynamics, Equipment & Technology Innovations

The project aims to test a contactless sensing system that is being developed to take readings of various vital signs (like heart rate) from patients without patients needing to come into contact with them (i.e. 'contactless'). The contactless sensing system uses a camera to collect the readings from a distance. We want to test the system for accuracy, reliability and usability. To do this, we will recruit participants and take select vital sign readings using non-invasive medical grade contact-type sensors and the contactless system. The information collected will help determine how accurate, reliable and usable the contactless system is in comparison to the medical grade contact-type devices.
