The Augmented Emotion Recognition App

aër is a lifestyle application that can recognise emotions using bio sensors on a wrist worn wearable and smartphone to determine the physiological state of an individual accurately and passively. It uses this data, in the context of physical activity, situations, proximity to people, voice analysis, GPS positioning and digital activities to create a real time mirror of one’s inner emotional self.

  2. PPG sensor: Measures Blood Volume Pulse (BVP), heart rate variability
  3. Infrared Thermopile: Reads peripheral skin temperature
  4. and, accelerometers / activity tracking etc.
