Abstract

Getting the right amount of quality sleep is one of the key aspects of good health, along with a healthy diet and regular exercise. We conducted a literature review and formative study aimed at uncovering the opportunities for technology to support healthy sleep behaviors. We present the results of interviews with sleep experts, a large survey, and interviews with potential users that indicate what people would find practical and useful for sleep. We identified a number of functional and non-functional requirements for technology for sleep. We explored three possible technology ideas for healthy sleep behaviors: a sleep tracking tool, game to promote sleep, and sleep condition assessment tool.
