Evaluation of social relationship between two persons using micro-movement in vestibular system

Abstract

The social relationship was including the interaction factor between the persons. In order to detect social relationship, it was using the unconscious response rather than conscious. The purpose of this study was to determine evaluation of social relationship using micro-movement expressed both automatic and unconscious. We used the „vibra-image‟ technology based on vision as the indicator of micro-movement. The vibra-image was consisted with 10 factors such as aggression, stress, tension/anxiety, suspect, balance, charm, energy, self-regulation, inhibition, and neuroticism. 12 subjects were participated in this experiment, assigned two groups. The one group was a friend (strong social relationship), and other was a stranger (weak social relationship). Participants were required interaction of facial expression with face to face. Following the result, the stranger group was significantly increased the factor of Aggression, Suspect, Balance of vibra-image factors, and friend group was not. We found that the tension and anxiety factor could be evaluating the social relationship. Also, the proposed method was only using webcam based on micro-movement without attaching the sensor based on physiological signal.
