Sensing Emotions: The impact of context on experience by Stephen H. Fairclough (auth.), Joyce Westerink, Martijn

By Stephen H. Fairclough (auth.), Joyce Westerink, Martijn Krans, Martin Ouwerkerk (eds.)

The authors of this e-book study the impact of particular daily life events and contexts at the emotional kingdom of individuals and the ways that this may impression measurements of consumer event. The publication anticipates a destiny during which items and machines understand how we think and adapt to the sentiments they experience (music structures that successfully improve our present temper with a customized selection of tune, desktop dialogues that stay away from upcoming frustration, and picture cameras that take photos each time we are excited). In a majority of these events, wisdom of the emotional kingdom of the person is fundamental information.

A past publication released within the Philips study publication sequence, "Probing Experience", illustrated how one can review the person event via behavioural and physiological parameters. the current booklet makes a speciality of the effect of context in those measurements. The everyday-life contexts of destiny items and machines could be continuously particular, specially compared to the normal laboratory state of affairs. Context can impression the event measurements and impression the incidence and features of yes indications. nevertheless, self reliant wisdom of the context may be very invaluable for the translation of expertise measurements. This booklet offers an summary of the current wisdom at the influence of context, and advocates the necessity for a joint knowing of its function within the dimension of expertise.

The authors contain many skilled researchers in this subject with a wide selection of backgrounds, together with company and academia, overlaying a vast diversity of context situations.

Example text

The design of this sensor was aimed at making a small and lightweight device. A folded flex foil was used to carry all the necessary electronics. To allow transmissive photoplethysmography an attachment to the flex foil was designed, which can be folded around the earlobe. Attachment of the device to the earlobe was spring loaded. Special attention was given to the prevention of stray light reaching the photodiode detector. The light output of the infra red light source can be regulated to use the best trade off between low power and good signal to noise ratio.

The skin conductance sensor consists of two parts: the detachable electronics module (see Fig. 4), and the wristband. The development of the current embodiment of the wristband went through a number of intermediate steps. In Fig. 5 these are shown in one picture. Version A was the first attempt to make a skin conductance wristband. The strap was not detachable, and could not accommodate all wrist sizes with good comfort. Version B had a split metal spring strap. This could indeed accommodate most wrist sizes, but the connection to the wrist was not tight enough, which gave motion artefacts in the skin conductance signal.

Irritations of the skin due to prolonged use need to be avoided. The devices need to be designed for daily use over a period of several years, requiring the package to be able to cope with mechanical impact and moisture. The electronics need to be detachable from the textile and skin contact parts, to allow cleaning. 3 Relevant parameters for wearable devices Parameter Description Placement Form language Human movement Proxemics Sizing Attachment Containment Weight Accessibility Sensory interaction Thermal Aesthetics Long-term use Where on the body it should go Defining the shape Consider the dynamic structure Human perception of space For body size diversity Fixing forms to the body Consider what is in the form As it is spread across the human body Physical access to the forms For passive or active input Issues of heat next to the body Perceptual appropriateness Effects on body and mind 28 M.
