Abstract

A field study was conducted in a secondary school during the heating and cooling seasons to examine the possibility of obtaining physiological signals from a wrist band as indicators of the thermal comfort of the students. During the school hours, the students wore wrist bands that collected physiological signals as the students answered questionnaires. The results indicated that the 10-minute averages of the students' skin temperatures were positively correlated with TSV in both seasons. Also, the EDA was correlated with TSV in the cooling season, and the standard deviation of EDA was correlated with both TSV and Thermal preference in the heating season. These results indicate that the temperature of the skin and EDA could serve as indices of the thermal comfort of teenage students in the classroom environment.
