Within the vision of Ambient Intelligence it is assumed that future electronic systems will be embedded into our lives and have different levels of intelligence. One class of systems that has reached such levels of embedding and intelligence are coaching systems for behavioral change. In this paper the findings of a field study are presented in which a coaching system is driven by data-analytics from sensor data. The study provides some first evidence that such coaching system is effective in guiding people to change their behavior. Additional, the study results enable the formulation of a statistical relationship between the test participant’s behaviors and the achieved adherence to the coaching target.
