Heart rate detected with accelerometers


Hi everyone! I'm new to WildLabs, so I wanted to introduce myself by sharing some of my recent research. We demonstrated that (under the right conditions) high-resolution accelerometers can detect the vibrations from heart beats. Our method is available as an R package on GitHub. If you're interested in bio-logging, ecophysiology, and/or open science I invite you to get in touch. Thanks!
