Abstract

The work presented in this paper relies on the recognition of emotions during pilot trials with elderly people in an ecologically valid living lab. The emotion recognition is processed by cloud based service and the photos for processing are captured from Kinect based on the skeleton presence and information. The Kinect publishes its information to a channel where the clients subscribe efficiently either to the skeleton or the RGM images channel.
