HCI Research Group


Arts, Media and Engineering Department HCI Research Group – Affective Learning Companion  |

Designed, tested and produced a short run production of medical grade wireless galvanic skin response bracelets, pressure monitoring seats and hand sensing computer mice used for large scale research on emotional computing. These projects were a delicate interplay of social constraints, material safety concerns and concealment; an engaging challenge that yielded elegant results. Working with the state of the art science machine shop at Arizona State University that made components for the Mars Rover, we manufactured medical grade stainless steel skin contacts, human factors & ergonomics at its best. As a testament to the quality of the designs, the HCI Research Group has continued subsequent production runs for further research. “Emotion Sensors Go To School” won the award for the best paper at the UK International Conference on Artificial Intelligence in Education – AIED 2009 |
