Abstract

Can self-management of emotion help on safety driving of diabetic patients? Fluctuant emotions in driving can lead to very critical situations. In particular for diabetic drivers experiencing hypoglycemic events it is inevitable to provide an intelligent alerting/recommendation system that assesses continuously driver's affective and metabolic states and predicts sudden hypoglycemic events, in order for avoiding dangerous situations during driving. In this paper we introduce an innovative approach to in-vehicle emotion monitoring system conceived in the EU project METABO. The system aims for providing the drivers a self-management opportunity to monitor/control their emotional states and apt recommendations according to detected hypoglycemic symptoms.
