Abstract:Behavioural support agents help to monitor peoples’ behaviour and aim to assist people in changing their behaviour. Over the past years, the influence of social media and phone applications that aim to do a similar thing have risen. There are datasets that give an insight into the morning routines of people, but those do not contain qualitative data like what people consider a habit, or whether they like to report on their morning routine. It is also unknown how people would intuitively report on their morning routines when asked to do so. This research will use a diary study combined with semi-structured interviews to better understand the way people report on their morning routines and find out ways in which this data can complement future research on behaviour modelling and an eventual behavioural support agent. This exploratory research will give indicate whether it is useful to complement quantitative data on morning routines with qualitative data and make suggestions for design requirements for a behavioural support agent in the form of a phone application.
