2014 Proceedings of the International Conference on Physiological Computing Systems  
Thermal infrared imaging has been proposed as a tool for the non-invasive and contact-less evaluation of vital signs, psychophysiological responses and states. Several applications have been so far developed in many diversified fields, like social and developmental psychology, psychometrics, human-computer interaction, continuous monitoring of vital signs, stress and, even, deception detection. Thermal infrared imaging has been poorly exploited in the field of human-robot interaction.
