In this study, we focus on emotion recognition for service robots in the living space based on Electrocardiogram (ECG). An emotional state is important information that allows a robot system to provide appropriate services in way that are more in tune with users' needs and preferences. Moreover, the users' emotional state can be feedbacks to evaluate user's level of satisfaction in the services. We apply a diagnosis method that uses both inter-beat and within-beat features of ECG. The post hoc tests in Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) showed that our approach satisfies more confidence level of difference between emotions than conventional methods. Our system design was based on wireless and wearable biological sensor for mobility and convenience of users' daily lifestyle.
