An Exploratory Study to Detect Temporal Orientation Using Bluetooth's sensor


Hernandez, Netzahualcoyotl; Demiray, Burcu; Arnrich, Bert; Favela, Jesus (2019). An Exploratory Study to Detect Temporal Orientation Using Bluetooth's sensor. In: the 13th EAI International Conference, Trento, Italy, 20 May 2019 - 23 May 2019, 292-297.

Abstract

Mobile sensing technology is allowing us to investigate human behaviour while performing day-to-day activities. In study we examined temporal orientation, which refers to the capacity of thinking or talking about personal events in the past and future. We utilize mk-sense platform that allow us to use experience-sampling method in daily life. Individual’s thoughts and their relationship with smartphone’s Bluetooth data is analysed to understand in which contexts people are influenced by social environments, such as the people they spend the most time with. As an exploratory study and based on previous work, we analyse social condition influence through collection of Bluetooth data and survey information from participant’s smartphones. Preliminary results show that people are likely to focus on past events when interacting with close-related people, and focus on future planning when interacting with stranger. Similarly, people experience present temporal orientation when accompanied by known people. We believe that these findings are linked to emotions since in its most basic state, emotion is a state of physiological arousal combined with an appropriated cognition. In this contribution, we envision a smartphone application for automatically inferring human emotions based on user’s temporal orientation by using Bluetooth sensors, we briefly elaborate on the influential factor of temporal orientation episodes and conclude with a discussion and lessons learned from this exploratory analysis.
