Re: March 18 - Day ONE: What Can You Do With Embedded Vision?

NO RATINGS
As I wrote just last night in an article I'm working on:

Electronic systems are also adept at detecting and accentuating minute image-to-image variations that the human visual system is unable to perceive, whether due to insufficient sensitivity or inadequate attention. As research at MIT and elsewhere has showcased, for example, it's possible to accurately measure a person's pulse rate simply by placing a camera in front of him or her and logging the minute facial color changes over time that are reflective of capillary blood flow. Similarly, embedded vision systems can precisely assess respiration rate by measuring the periodic rise and fall of the subject's chest.

This same embedded vision precision can find use in providing early-warning indication of neurological disorders such as ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, also known as Lou Gehrig's disease) and Parkinson's disease. Minute trembling, so slight that it may not yet even be perceptible to the subject, is less likely to escape the perceptive gaze of an embedded vision-enabled piece of medical gear. Slight gait aberrations are another possible neurological abnormality warning sign.
