The Effect of Multi-media Contents in Reducing Sensible Temperature

Shuhei Yamamoto, Akira Tomono, Hajime Katsuyama

Abstract

In this paper, the effect of multi-media contents such as visual images, scent, and their combinations on sensible temperature is investigated. For this purpose, a new definition of sensible temperature which takes into account the effect of visual images and scent is proposed. Using this definition, the effectiveness of multi-media contents in reducing sensible temperature was quantitatively measured. It turned out that visual images with lemon aroma is more effective in reducing sensible temperature than visual images alone.
