ZOE is a smart anti panic wearable system comprising smart bluetooth in-ear headphones and a smartphone application. It provides assistance to people tending to increased stress and panic attacks in crowds. ZOE is able to determine the user’s stress level by measuring heart frequency, heart frequency variety and the electrodermal response via two sensors in each headphone.
In case of increasing stress ZOE can phase down the surrounding noise via active noise canceling technology, play relaxing music, breathing exercises or personal audio recordings. If a panic attack occurs ZOE will navigate the user out of the crowd using offline site maps.
