Dynamically Improving Collective Environments through Mood Induction Procedures
In our daily living, the environment surrounding us influences us as much or more than we influence it. Whether it is a domestic, leisure or working environment, its conditions will certainly have short and long-term effects on aspects such as stress, mood or fatigue, which will in turn influence indicators such as productivity, quality of work, quality of life, personal/group performance or even health. In this paper a dynamic environment is proposed that, based on the behavioural analysis of its users, will adapt its conditions to improve particular indicators. This will result in better working environments, with an impact on the quality of the work produced.
