A blind source signal separation problem that was brought to a Study Group in Limerick in 2013 required a way to prevent the gait of a jogger from masking the heartbeat, when detected by a simple photodiode that measures light transmission through a jogger’s wrist tissues. The group was successful in discovering a singular value decomposition (SVD) approach, which not only allows accurate detection of heart rate but also allows recovery of a good facsimile of the entire blood pressure time series from the mixed photodiode signal.
