Abstract

The experience of negative emotions in everyday life, such as anger and anxiety, can have adverse effects on long-term cardiovascular health. However, objective measurements provided by mobile technology can promote insight into this psychobiological process and promote self-awareness and adaptive coping. It is postulated that the creation of a mobile lifelogging platform can support this approach by continuously recording personal data via mobile/wearable devices and processing this information to measure physiological correlates of negative emotions. This paper describes the development of a mobile lifelogging system that measures anxiety and anger during real-life driving. A number of data streams have been incorporated in the platform, including cardiovascular data, speed of the vehicle and first-person photographs of the environment. In addition, thirteen participants completed five days of data collection during daily commuter journeys to test the system. The design of the system hardware and associated data streams are described in the current paper, along with the results of preliminary data analysis.
