Thermal Detection System for Not Superficial Victims Heartbeat Detection

Carlos I. García S., A. Yoloxóchil J. R., and Larry H. Escobar
Abstract—This article proposes a system for detecting people who have been trapped under rubble and remain in inaccessible confined spaces. The system is based on thermal imaging processing. It applies algorithms to search not superficial victims focused on detecting their heartbeat, so a module portable search installed in an exploration robot as well as an external module that processes all information transmitted using the Robot Operation System (ROS) are implemented.

Index Terms—Heartbeat, infrared radiation, IR, Mexican hat, region of interest, ROI, robot operating system, ROS, thermal images.
