Measuring the vital signs of human body, such as oxygen saturation, blood pressure, and heart rate is the greatest and basic stage of the diagnosis of various diseases, especially cardiovascular diseases. Various methods have been developed to measure these signs. In general, these methods are divided into invasive and non-invasive categories. Due to less damages of non-invasive methods, more attention has been paid to them in recent decades. Using mobile phone is one of the most important non-invasive approaches because of being common and accessible among people. In this article, after studying Photoplethysmographic methods and expressing theories related to this method, imaging photoplethysmography (IPPG) is used to measure heart rate. Regarding two proposed algorithms based on furies transfer and peak detection, implementation of these algorithms was done, using a camera and LED of smart phone on 20 people. Next, the heart was calculated. Finally, a comparison was made between the two methods, the results of which show that peak detection method has less error than furies transfer method.
