Wearable Device-assisted Emotional Wellbeing Intervention with a Social Robot

Emotional wellbeing is an important indicator of overall health and poor emotional wellbeing can equally adversely affect one's overall health and wellbeing (and vice versa).  Systems that help monitor and self-manage their emotional well-being by providing feedback and interventions can promote positive emotional well-being and perhaps, more significantly, might increase overall well-being. 

Overall System

The system is consisted of Jibo station and the wearable sensor such as Fitbit smart watch. The user data is shared through the tablet app in a real-time manner and supports personalized intervention for each user. Users initially set their goals and the goal is adapted based on the user activity and life patterns.

To deliver a more effective intervention, the system should be able to understand the underlying state of each user and not only provide manual answers, the system needs to naturally identify the true state of each user with explainable, empathetic, and motivational conversation.
