A unique project for measuring mood was presented in the capital’s stand at the LOGIN festival

All those, who came to have their mood measured, also had the opportunity to find out the mood dominating in the capital city in real time. The strongest emotions of passers-by measured using sensors and special lamps at six points in the capital city were displayed at the stand set up at the LOGIN festival every three seconds.

The neuroanalysis system developed by VGTU together with the City of Vilnius was designed to collect data and analyse the emotions of residents in public spaces, including additional data and combinations of information layers, which will later be used to create emotional, physiological maps and maps of pollution in public spaces, also providing personalized recommendations.
During the project implemented in Vilnius for more than three years, the neuroanalytical system developed and applied by VGTU researchers together with Vilnius Municipality attracted great interest among the project partners and participants of the final conference “ROCK Open Knowledge Week:... ❯❯❯
