A smart speaker tool to 'beckon' people away from their desks

Mika Davis Jupp


Supervised by Stuart M Allen; Moderated by Juan Hernandez Vega

Spending too much time at our desks is bad for us. There are lots of tools to encourage people to get up and move around, but, as these are often computer-based, they are not always successful. In this project, you will develop an alternative system. It will use smart speakers located around people's homes to encourage them away from their desks. This client-server system will allow people to set up a schedule on a website and have these preferences reflected in the way that their smart speaker tries to call them away from their desks. No hardware is necessary for this, you will be able to complete the projects using simulators.
