Abstract
(EN)
Apparatus and methods are described for use with a bodily emission (26) of a subject that is disposed within a toilet bowl. While the bodily emission is disposed within the toilet bowl (23), light is received from the toilet bowl using one or more light sensors (60). Using a computer processor (44), one or more spectral components within the received light that are indicative of light absorption by a component of erythrocytes are detected, by analyzing the received light. In response thereto, the computer processor determines that there is a presence of blood within the bodily emission. The computer processor generates an output on an output device (32), at least partially in response thereto. Other applications are also described.

(FR)
L'invention concerne un appareil et des procédés destinés à être utilisés avec une substance corporelle (26) d'un sujet qui est disposée dans une cuvette de toilette. Pendant que la substance corporelle est disposée dans la cuvette de toilette (23), une lumière est reçue de la cuvette de toilette à l'aide d'un ou de plusieurs capteurs de lumière (60). À l'aide d'un processeur d'ordinateur (44), une ou plusieurs composantes spectrales dans la lumière reçue qui sont représentatives de l'absorption de la lumière par un composant d'érythrocytes, sont détectées, par analyse de la lumière reçue. À la suite de ceci, le processeur d'ordinateur détermine qu'il y a une présence de sang dans la substance corporelle. Le processeur d'ordinateur génère une sortie sur un dispositif de sortie (32), au moins partiellement à la suite de ceci. L'invention porte également sur d'autres applications.
