Objective: Emotions are the indicators of mental wellbeing. In this paper, we present an interactive tool called SAEIT (Self-Assessment of Emotions by Interactive Tool) for recognition of six basic emotions which includes anger, disgust, fear, happy, sad and surprise based on the 2D Valence-Arousal emotional model. Method: The tool is developed using LabVIEW software and uses two parameters namely valence and arousal to identify the emotional status. This interactive tool enables the user to enter the valence-arousal parameters of their current affective state; the tool then determines the emotion being experienced based on these inputs. Experimental boundary conditions are used for designing the classifier rules. Further these conditions helps in the classification of emotions which includes quadrant I, II and III emotions of the 2D valence-arousal model. The user can also feed in the activity being performed at the time, which too will be recorded along with the date and time for further analysis. Application: The programmed interactive tool displays personalized messages or suggestions based on the mood of the user to help make better decisions in their present emotional state.
