Transense is a presentation engagement system for the presenter, which gives them a “sixth sense” of their audience’s level of engagement and the link with presenter’s nonverbal behaviour to enhance their presentation performance. Currently, most presentations are delivered in one way—from presenter to the audience. However, the ability to understand the audience’s engagement level is essential for presenters who give presentations for persuasive or arousing purposes. Transense helps those presenters to understand their audience and their performance through analyzing their nonverbal behaviour. 

Transense enables the presenter to sense audience’s response towards their performance in real-time through AR glasses and gives presenters insights on where to improve through an application afterwards. The system provides a new channel for the presenter to track their performance.
