Sensor Reads Signs of Oncoming Aggression in People with Autism

Some adults, teens and children with autism can become
suddenly aggressive with little warning for the people taking care of them. But
researchers at Northeastern University have created a device that can predict
aggressive episodes a minute before they happen with nearly 90% accuracy. The
device, which is worn on the wrist, collects data on skin temperature, body
movement, heart rate and sweat levels. The information is sent to a computer,
which detects the digital biomarkers of oncoming aggression.
