Non-contact detection of heart rate has been addressed by researchers from very different fields. However, the low accuracy of measuring results in the difficulties in methodology deployment. This paper introduces the principle of heartbeat detection. A detection scheme by using Kinect is proposed. Further, the signal processing approach based on JADE algorithm is developed to efficiently remove the clutter in mixture signals, and it enables accurate transforming via Z-score normalization. Due to the significances presented in this work, the detection error is 1.79%, when processed with the proposed algorithm. Experimental results are statistically analyzed, which makes it a promising basis for the realization of heart rate detection.
