Vital signs, such as breathing and heartbeat, are useful to health monitoring since such signals provide important clues of medical conditions. Effective solutions are needed to provide contact-free, easy deployment, low-cost, and long-term vital sign monitoring. Exploiting wireless signals for contact-free vital sign monitoring will be an important part of the future healthcare Internet of Things (IoT). In this talk, we present our recent work on contact-free vital sign monitoring. The first part is to exploit channel state information (CSI) phase difference data to monitor breathing and heartbeat with commodity WiFi devices. We will present PhaseBeat, a discrete wavelet transform based design, and TensorBeat, a tensor decomposition based design, as well as our experimental study to validate their performance. The second part of this talk is to exploit a 20KHz ultrasound signal for breathing rate detection. We will present our smartphone App based implementation. Our experimental study shows that the proposed systems can achieve high accuracy under different environments for vital sign monitoring.
