In fact, an increasing number of initiatives are being carried out to influence employees towards healthier lifestyles in later years. However, despite demonstrating moderate efficacy, the body of literature shows that the lack of adherence of the target audience to the interventions is an important factor to overcome in order to attain higher success. To increase employees' motivation and prevent early drop-out, disengagement or high attrition rates, this work presents an intervention methodology based on the Internet of Things (IoT) paradigm. Specifically, it presents a novel concept of a participatory worker-centric IoT solution for enhancing individuals' well-being in office environments. This approach seeks to stress the significance of empowering workers providing to them fine-grained control of their own well-being and self-care which correlates to higher rates of participation in health promotion initiatives. Along this chapter the main challenges associated with the design and development of technology-based interventions are reviewed. Moreover, the value of increasing the acceptance and adoption of the presented IoT approach from the employee's perspective is analyzed in a comprehensive manner.}, booktitle = {Transforming {Ergonomics} with {Personalized} {Health} and {Intelligent} {Workplaces}}, publisher = {IOS Press, Incorporated}, author = {G\xf3mez-Carmona, Oihane and Casado-Mansilla, Diego and Garcia-Zubia, Javier}, keywords = {Intelligent Environments, Internet of Things, Participatory Sensing, Wellness Promotion, workplace}, pages = {14} }"]

One of the recurring problems on different application scenarios is the lack of adherence of the target audience (i.e. disengagement, early drop-out or high attrition rates). In this context, the potential of the Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) and the emerging paradigm of the Internet of Things (IoT) can play a mediating role between the proposers (i.e. managers) and the target audience (i.e employees) to increase motivation and follow-up. The presented work reviews the main challenges of IoT-based interventions for workplace health promotion and presents a participatory worker-centric concept for enhancing individuals' well-being in office environments. Our approach seeks to stress the importance of empowering workers providing to them fine-grained control of their own well-being and self-care. To this aim, we propose turning work environments into ideal confident-settings to persuade and motivate end-users attaining substantial changes that will persist over time.}, booktitle = {Intelligent {Environments} 2018: {Workshop} {Proceedings} of the 14th {International} {Conference} on {Intelligent} {Environments}}, author = {G\xf3mez-Carmona, Oihane and Casado-Mansilla, Diego and Garc\xeda-Zub\xeda, Javier}, month = jun, year = {2018}, keywords = {Intelligent Environments, Internet of Things, Participatory Sensing, Wellness Promotion, workplace}, pages = {355 -- 363} }"]

The research on this \ufb01eld falls within the scope of Smart Cities (SC) with the advantages that the common public spaces provide as new points for information exchange between the city, the urban furniture and their citizens. Kiosk systems have been recognized as an appropriate mean for providing event-aware and localized information to the right audience at the right time. Hence, in this article, we provide a vision of an eco-system of multifunctional urban furniture, where kiosks are part of them, designed not only for digital interaction but for sustainable use and symbolic integration into the urban environment as well. The proposed approach is conceived to drive services through digital urban nodes that facilitate tailored citizen-city communication and interaction. The central element of the designed platform consists on an intelligent digital kiosk which features a series of hardware and software components for sensing different environmental conditions, multimodal interaction with users and for conveying the captured data to the Cloud. The custom-based contents visualized to the users are controlled remotely through a management tool that allows to set-up and con\ufb01gure the digital kiosk. This system is not presented as an ad-hoc solution for one speci\ufb01c purpose but instead, it becomes a platform that can accommodate and solve the needs of every kind of user that populates urban shared-use spaces.}, language = {en}, number = {19}, urldate = {2019-04-09TZ}, journal = {Proceedings}, author = {G\xf3mez-Carmona, Oihane and Casado-Mansilla, Diego and L\xf3pez-de-Ipi\xf1a, Diego}, month = nov, year = {2018}, pages = {1212} }']

By means of a RFID reader, the interactive mirror recognises different users through their personal corporate ID card, which allows them to have access to their personalised user-interface. The smart mirror provides workplace\u2019s indoor environmental conditions (thermal, humidity and light), personal physical exercise data obtained from wearable devices and general purpose information (e.g. weather and daily news). Additionally, motivational advice related to physical performance is supplied through request by applying speech-based recognition techniques. End-users can also inquire the mirror about their ranking position in a fair-daily competition that gives social recognition to the most-active-user. The implemented mirror has been evaluated in a one-week study conducted in the wild in the workplace premises. The quantitative data gathered throughout the study, as well as the qualitative users\u2019 feedback obtained in a post-trial focus group, provided promising findings for the acceptance and convenience of such a persuasive device in the work environment. Furthermore, valuable design-insights were obtained for future iterations of the smart mirror that encourages workers towards healthier lifestyles.}, booktitle = {2nd {International} {Multidisciplinary} {Conference} on {Computer} and {Energy} {Science}}, author = {G\xf3mez-Carmona, Oihane and Casado-Mansilla, Diego}, month = jul, year = {2017}, keywords = {E-Health, Intelligent Environments, Internet of Things, Smart Everyday Objects, Wellness Promotion, smiwork-an-interactive-smart-mirror-platform-for-workplace-health-promotion} }']
