About Bodymonitor GmbH

When people move around, they often experience emotions and gain impressions of their surroundings on a subconscious level. The Bodymonitor solution consists of a developed algorithm (software) and a wristband with integrated sensors and wireless functionality.
Bodymonitor will be able to measure positive and negative emotions, as well as users' stress situations.

The challenge

Emotional Mapping in combination with high-level GNSS.

The solution

Emotional mapping is a new application of Bodymonitor's innovative technology that measures people's emotions in-situ.

People react to socio-spatial contexts and locations with emotions like stress, interest, balance, and retraction. To capture these emotions in real time along with where they were evoked, Bodymonitor's products use changes in body data - electrodermal activity or skin temperature, for example - and ambient parameters like acceleration, temperature, and electrode contact.

This data is merged with position and location information to allow for emotional mapping, which is relevant for multiple target markets:

  • Urban planning
  • Civil protection / homeland security
  • Tourism
  • Marketing
