Cyber-Empathic Design: a Framework For Mapping User Perceptions to Design Features Via Embedded Sensors

We propose a novel product design method – cyber-empathic design – that collects quantitative consumer-product interaction data using digital sensors embedded in products. By combining digital sensor data with methods from behavioral psychology, we provide theoretical insights on the role of actual product usage/interaction in driving user adoption of new products.
