When our ambulance transports a sick patient, we are able to acquire a large amount of data (like heart rate, oxygen level, respiration rate, carbon dioxide levels, ) every 10 seconds. I am able to graph the data, but i am hoping that someone with signal processing expertise might be able to recommend/develop a method where the graph can be simplified, so that trends can be more easily seen.

Image Processing Software
image processing to automate the collection of data vehicle movements such as distance, speed and acceleration to facilitate research. It is important that image processing program developed be flexible enough to be used as a template to process similar images and extract data at different locations.
>data extraction into excel or some other means.
>extracted data will be used to develop a differential equation on dynamic interaction movement between bicycles and motor vehicles. (this part is for informational purposes only and not part of this scope of work.)
scope of work:
engine: opencv, matlab or any suitable program
1. Image processing to determine movement of bicycle car interaction. The parameter estimation will be based on time and distance. Time is know from clock on video. Distance can be determined because distance of street striping is precisely regulated and known
generally when motorized vehicles approach adjacent moving bicycles along a traffic corridor (not intersection), the motorist behavior sometimes changes. They either:
(c) move slightly away from the moving bicycle they are approaching but not switch lanes (most likely scenario)
(d) move away from the moving bicycle they are approaching and switch lanes
(e) do nothing
(f) move slightly and laterally toward bicycle (least likely scenario)
2. extracting the data into a readable format such as excel or similar for further data analysis
3. write a short paper on how image was extracted.
4. short training regarding how program is executed to extract data
5 provide source code because template will be used at different locations to extract data
6. Tweaking program when needed+11 Other Responses
I have an idea that i feel is worth exploring. This idea could completely change how devices communicate and store data. It all starts with redefining digital and analog.
I would like to build a prototype using 2 computers linked together and create a software on both sides which passes signals and is then interpreted to data. The key is the interpretation. I want to send signals back and forth between the computers that are analog but the interpretation to data is completely different. If successful i should be able to move a file multiple gigs in size between these 2 computers in milliseconds where a normal connection would take over a minute.
