Low-cost monitoring for stimulus detection in skin conductance
Keywords:Skin Conductance, Galvanic Skin Response, stimulus detection, low-cost sensor, Active Assisted Living
Not so many consumer devices are available for minimally invasive monitoring of Skin Conductance (SC), differently from what happens for other physiological signals. In this paper, a low-cost monitoring system for SC signals is presented. For comparison purposes, the SC signals are simultaneously acquired by the low-cost monitoring system and by a ProComp Infiniti desk equipment. The paper shows that, despite the simpler design and hardware limitations exhibited by the low-cost system, the collected SC signals provide the same relevant information for stimulus detection of the SC signals acquired by a much more expensive acquisition board. Specifically, the comparison is fulfilled through the ability of the low-cost monitoring system in detecting the increase of both SC baseline and peaks after stimulation.
