Project description

The objective of this project is to develop a framework (hw/sw) to be used to recognize emotion while driving. In Automotive field there is an increasing interest for more trustable and confortable cars. For this reason we want to develop a system that is able to recognize emotion in a car environment. The purpose could be to advise in the case of high stress or to control the car to make the driver feel better.

The project developed on parallel lines.

Pamela Gotti worked on the analysis of biological signals.

Cristian Mandelli worked on the interpretation of facial expressions and movements of the head and upper part of the body. Details

Laboratory work and risk analysis

Laboratory work for this project will be mainly performed at AIRLab/DEI and on a car. Risks are related to the use of PC and data acquisition devices, as well as to drive a car.
