In this study, the correlation of human physiological parameters to ambient temperature was evaluated in the temperature range of 21–29 °C. The physiological parameters investigated herein included mean skin temperature (MST), heart rate, the ratio of absolute power in low frequency (LF) and high frequency (HF) bands (LF/HF ratio). The results of ANOVA and R test indicated that MST was correlated to ambient temperature, while LF/HF ratio was not found to be correlated at all. Heart rate was a little more correlate to low temperature than high temperature. The conclusions are significant to select suitable parameters for human thermal response research in the moderate thermal environment.
