Emotions are crucial to any kind of human interaction. Both, emotional state and its perception of own and others have a great impact on the cooperation outcomes. In this paper, we discuss the role of emotions in collaboration and present a concept of the prototype aimed at enriching collaborative remote groups with emotional awareness which can in turn potentially lead to increased intragroup trust and increased performance. The main difference of the presented system from similar ones is that it makes use of inobtrusive and robust emotions measurement and representation based on brain activity. We provide a short overview of related works and further directions.
