Abstract (Summary)

With advancements in technology and people being more conscious about their health than ever, technical advancements in the field of medicine are inevitable. People are switching towards wearable devices to keep track of their health and fitness related data. This project looks into the development of a heart rate monitor to keep track of the user’s heart rate. The report presents the development of a heart rate monitor interfaced with a Bluetooth module to wirelessly view related data on a smartphone or any other Bluetooth compatible device. The heart rate monitor developed uses the photoplethysmography (PPG) principle to calculate the heart beats per minute. The PPG module developed is then interfaced with an Arduino Uno board responsible for calculating the beats per minute. It then transfers the serial data to a Bluetooth module, which transmits the data to another Bluetooth compatible device. The results show that the heart rate is successfully transferred over Bluetooth and could be helpful in emergency or monitoring situations.
