The SPHERE project: Sleep monitoring using computer vision

Martinez, Manuel; Stiefelhagen, Rainer



Abstract (englisch): The aim of the SPHERE project is to develop a compact device that monitors sleep using computer vision. Our system attaches to the ceiling above the bed and integrates infrared and depth cameras, alongside other auxiliary sensors. We installed systems in a nursery home and a sleep laboratory, allowing us to evaluate algorithms that analyze respiration, sleep position and agitation. Compared to other sleep monitoring modalities, computer vision is non-intrusive, and provides a holistic understanding of the bed environment, enabling better alarm systems and cleaner sleep summaries.
