An Adaptive, Structural and Content Gamification Concept for Regulated Daily Routines

Martin Franke, Bianca Zimmer, Thomas Schlegel

Abstract

In this work, we introduce our concept for regulating daily routines in assisted living environments by the use of gamification elements. Nowadays mobile devices and sensors are ubiquitous, so they are suitable for assisting users on reaching their personal goals. One of the most pressing challenges in this regard is the preservation of long-term user motivation. In this paper we propose a gamification concept for a mobile application that support the achievement of regulated daily routines. With our assistive knowledge- and modelbased approach SeMiWa, the system detects irregularities and their potential cause. These obtained insights are used to adapt the content of the application in a gamified way. A prototypical implementation substantiates our approach and introduces our forthcoming user study.
