Today’s trend is to use IT in every area of our lives. Technology is primarily used to improve the standard of living. Emotions are the basis of human experience, even though it is difficult to define, recognize, and classify them. Nowadays, greater emphasis and attention is placed on the computer’s ability to evaluate emotional changes and conditions in humans. Proper assessment and recognition of the human emotions may lead to a better understanding of user behavior. Systems that are able to acquire data, evaluate user status and model them have a broad application in various spheres of human activity (neuro-marketing, automotive control, adaptive learning, mental health, etc.). The cognitive process is carried out at two fundamental levels in the level of sensory perception and intellectual perception. In humans, these two basic levels are progressively developed through age or by their own experience. The chapter describes a research study of individual emotional states that can be captured by various sensors, which can quantify and evaluate emotional states of users and thus adapt their surroundings.
