AUBURN, AL (WTVM) - A group of graduate students and their professor were recognized at an international conference for an app they created.

The Sonar Beat app uses wireless signals to detect vital signs in humans. The team's prototype found a person's respiratory rate from an app on an Android phone.

Members of the group say the goal is to make vital signs easier to detect.
