DIY photoplethysmographic pulse sensor

Wednesday, September 19th, 2012

Raj has posted a tutorial about a DIY photoplethysmographic sensor for measuring heart rate from fingertip. "The sensor measures the little variations in the blood volume inside finger tissue and outputs a digital pulse which is synchronous with the heart beat." The sensor used in this project is TCRT1000, which...
