We present algorithm for Heart Rate detection based on Short Term Autocorrelation Center Clipping method. This algorithm is dedicated for biological signal detection, electrocardiogram, in noisy environment with lot of artifacts. Using this algorithm is also possible detect the R pointers in the PQRST complex of the ECG signal. In this paper the new implementation of the heart rate variability estimation is also presented. HRV module is based on parametric and non parametric methods of the power spectral density computation.
