    TCRT5000 is a Proximity sensor... I've seen them used for detecting Pulse-Rate, but not Heart-Rate. For info on the Pulse-rate version check out this site:

    Dude, pulse rate and heart rate are the same thing.
    The title of the project you linked to is "Microcontroller measures heart rate through fingertip".
