Part 1: project profile
Project short description
The project is aimed at developing affective devices that are able to acquire biological signals in a way that is less invasive for the subject.

Other Politecnico di Milano people
Students that have worked on the project
- Mattia Colombo (Blood Volume Pressure sensor)
- Alessia Cornaggia (Galvanic skin response sensor)
- Sala Mirko (Galvanic skin response sensor)
Laboratory work and risk analysis
Laboratory work for this project will be mainly performed at AIRLab/Lambrate. It will include electrical and electronic activity. Potentially risky activities are the following:
- Use of soldering iron. Standard safety measures described in Safety norms will be followed.
- Use of high-voltage circuits. Special gloves and a current limiter will be used.
- Robot testing. Standard safety measures described in Safety norms will be followed.
- Use of a modified (human-guided) golf cart. We will use the cart only in open-air environments.
Part 2: project description
The project is aimed at developing affective devices that are able to acquire biological signals in a way that is less invasive for the subject. The term invasive is related to how much the sensors we use compromise the normal interaction.
An affective device should be weared easily, should not have cables and should acquire as much sensors as possible. It is composed by:
- Blood Volume pressure (Mattia Colombo)
- Skin galvanic response (Sala Mirko e Alessia Cornaggia)
- Wireless comunication
