    Emotion regulation in people with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is challenging for family, caretakers and people around them due to extreme behavior patterns such as aggression, self-injury, defiance and outbursts. Understanding the underlying emotional states of the children can help care takers, parents, teachers and other concerned persons to intervene and formulate personalized preventive and reactive strategies. A number of wearable devices like smart watches and smart belts are used for monitoring the health and related parameters. Researchers in Human Computer Interaction (HCI) have used these devices to identify the hidden emotional state of the user by acquiring physiological data (Electrocardiogram (ECG), Electromyogram (EMG) etc.,) as well as visible behavioral information (posture, gesture, activity levels etc.,) to predict the emotional state of the user.
