Abstract

Collection of information of the events taking place in local neighborhoods along with the emotional statuses of the people involved can enable us to realize an 'affective smart city map', with which, for example, the local authority can review the measures adopted for the local areas and whether their these measure have actually contributed to the quality of life (QoL) and well-being of the people. To realize such an information system having easy-deployability, real-time and secure protection of user's sensitive data, we propose SmileCityReport, a smartphone app-based participatory sensing that can easily capture both the city events and the reporter's emotion-related status based on a novel technique that uses two cameras simultaneously. For our evaluation, we evaluated 15 users over one week and confirmed that the proposed methodology contributes to more activity and (estimated) more positive emotional status of the users, and also that the emotion-related facial expression values constitute valuable data that can be publicly shared.
