Abstract (Summary)

Respiratory rate is a parameter that can be used to provide information on a person’s physiological state and fitness. In this project a non-contact breathing rate measurement is used as the sensors are placed one inch away from the nose. The BMP180 which is a pressure sensor will capture data of every inhale and exhale. Depending on this data relaxing designs or pictures will appear on the screen (goggles) which will make a person more relaxed as he/she can see to what he/she is breathing. This project is useful for yoga and entertainment purpose. This project can also be used for medical purpose. For this project I will be using Arduino Uno as a processor. To fulfill the promise of virtual reality, smart goggles are used as a screen, so that a person don’t have to be tethered to a computer, tablet or phone; they allow natural interaction so you can use them without reaching for an external input device; they also provide access to the content and applications on the go.
