Contact-Free Measurement of Stress, its Determinants and Consequences
Stress is a widespread concern in today’s world, impacting individual well-being and productivity within organizations. However, the conventional methods of stress assessment, which often involve invasive procedures, have hindered progress in this field.
In this sub-project, we are using contact-less empathokinesthetic sensory modalities to explore their application in experimentally induced acute psychosocial stress scenarios. By analyzing macro and micro movements, we gain valuable insights into the relationship between stress and physiological responses, uncovering subtle cues that arise during stressful experiences. Our goal is to understand how stress affects bodily movements and physiology, which can refine stress detection and interventions in real-life situations. Ultimately, the outcomes of this sub-project have the potential to impact how we address stress-related challenges in various settings.
