Onsite Stress Measurement

Occupational stress can be described as a harmful emotional and physical response that occurs when high demanding job conditions cannot be met by the resources of the worker. This type of stress is usually associated with feelings of frustration, anger, and fear and can lead to dissatisfaction and lack of motivation in the long-term. Furthermore, high levels of stress can impair decision making, decrease productivity, and lead to high amounts of accidents and job absenteeism. Despite the well-studied negative outcomes, workplace stress is still considered a necessary evil by many people as it helps us keep up with the pace of modern society. Leveraging state-of-the-art sensing technologies and AI, this project seeks to advance the measurement, understanding, and management of stress in real-life settings.
