Communication kinesthésique des émotions dans un contexte d'interaction homme-machine

Abstract : The communication of emotions use several modalities of expression, as facial expressions or touch. The affective computing field aims to integrate an emotional component in human-computer interactions. Even though touch is an effective vector of emotions, is remains little explored. This thesis aims to investigate the kinesthetic features of the expression and perception of emotions in a human-computer interaction setting. Firstly, this thesis considers the kinesthetic expression and perception of semantically close and acted emotions. Secondly, this thesis proposes a facial-kinesthetic combination of expressions of several close emotions. This aims to investigate the influence of the kinesthetic modality on the multimodal perception of emotions. Finally, this thesis goes beyond acted emotions by focusing on the expression and perception of a spontaneous state of stress. Those different experiments used various devices for kinesthetic interaction, as Geomagic Touch devices and a pressure rendering device developed for this thesis. Results have multiple applications. Firstly, a better integration of the kinesthetic modality in virtual settings, from human-human remote communications to immersion in video games. This thesis also paves the way for an automatic recognition of affective states expressed by the kinesthetic modality.
