Emotional Drive - Wearing your heart on your car

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


It is postulated that in the near future cars could detect and publicly display their drivers’ emotions in real-time, by making use of an ‘Affect Engine’ along with colour changing paint. Moreover, using an implicit human-in-the-loop approach, and emerging communications standards, drivers perceptions and emotional responses could form an integral part of wider affect-based ad hoc vehicle-to-vehicle networks. Allowing participate in social emotional displays that interact with transport infrastructure to help to advantage, and so encourage, positive emotional states and interactions.
