Emotion recognition through physiological recording is an emerging field of research with many promising results. This work is involved in the construction of a device used to identify basic human emotions indexed by Electro Dermal Activity (EDA) in real time, using a non-invasive sensor attached to a wrist band. We refer to the system as "E Lock-Holmes". The device measures changes in Skin Conductance Level (SCL) caused due to stimulating signals from brain which results from sympathetic neural activity using Ag/AgCl electrodes placed on the ventral side of the distal forearm to evaluate the emotions of the user outside the constrained laboratory environment without interrupting the normal daily routine. The device consists of an embedded system for EDA signal acquisition and a wireless communication module to send processed EDA signals to a remote system. A vibrator attached to the device is used to provide user feedback.
