This dataset is part of the Monash, UEA & UCR time series regression repository.

The goal of this dataset is to estimate heart rate using PPG sensors. This dataset contains 3096, 5 dimensional time series obtained from the IEEE Signal Processing Cup 2015: Heart Rate Monitoring During Physical Exercise Using Wrist-Type Photoplethysmographic (PPG) Signals. Two-channel PPG signals, three-axis acceleration signals, and one-channel ECG signals were simultaneously recorded from subjects with age from 18 to 35. For each subject, the PPG signals were recorded from wrist by two pulse oximeters with green LEDs (wavelength: 515nm). Their distance (from center to center) was 2 cm. The acceleration signal was also recorded from wrist by a three-axis accelerometer. Both the pulse oximeter and the accelerometer were embedded in a wristband, which was comfortably worn. The ECG signal was recorded simultaneously from the chest using wet ECG sensors. All signals were sampled at 125 Hz and sent to a nearby computer via Bluetooth.
