The FABO Database

The Bi-modal Face and Body Gesture Database for Automatic Analysis of Human Nonverbal Affective Behavior (the FABO Database) was created at the Faculty of Information Technology at the University of Technology, Sydney (UTS) by Hatice Gunes and Massimo Piccardi in 2005. Posed visual data was collected from volunteers in a laboratory setting by asking and directing the part icipants on the required actions and movements.

The goal of the FABO Database is to provide a data source for the research in Affective Multi-modal Human Computer Interaction. This database aims to help researchers develop new techniques, technology, and algorithms for automatic bi-modal/multi-modal recognition of human nonverbal behavior and affective states.

To advance state-of-the-art in multi-modal affect recognition, the FABO Database will be made available to researchers in affective computing field on a case by case basis only. All requests for the FABO Database must be submitted to Hatice Gunes and Massimo Piccard using the release agreement form
