Abstract

We present a system for tracking positive cognitive and emotional states for affective computing, which uses contactless temperature sensors on eye glasses to monitor changes in facial temperature. First user tests show promising results for identifying different likability of video content reflected in changes of facial temperature. In contrast to the related works that focuses on detecting negative states, our approach aims at identifying positive affects. In combination with additional physiological sensor readings our proposed system allows the maintenance and retention of highly enjoyable and productive states.
