Automatic environment adjustment for emotional disabilities

Conference Paper

One often-overlooked area for assistive technology is help for those with emotional needs. Since these individuals may not emote in a typical way, most techniques for affective computing will not work for this population. Further, the applications that detect emotion are generally concerned with helping the user with some task, not simply helping them with their emotional difficulties. In this work, we present React 2 Me, a system that uses ambient technology to detect multimodal behavioral cues that may indicate emotional distress and adjust the environment to help the individual regulate their emotions.
