The QIRT 2016 Conference took place on July 4-8, 2016 at Gdańsk University of Technology in Poland. During this professional event focused on thermal imaging a few papers were presented related to the eGlasses platform. In particular, studies focused on the estimation of the respiratory rate from thermal sequences recorded by a portable thermal camera were presented. Additionally, the preliminary results on facce detection from low quality thermal images were also presented. Face detection is important for estimation of respiratory-related regions (e.g. the nostrils) in thermal imaging.
