Abstract

The Empatica E3 is a wearable wireless multi- sensor device for real-time computerized biofeedback and data acquisition. The E3 has four embedded sensors: photoplethysmo- graph (PPG), electrodermal activity (EDA), 3-axis accelerometer, and temperature. It is small, light and comfortable and it is suitable for almost all real-life applications. The E3 operates both in streaming mode for real-time data processing using a Bluetooth low energy interface and in recording mode using its internal flash memory. With E3, it is possible to conduct research outside of the lab by acquiring continuous data for ambulatory situations in a comfortable and non-distracting way.
