Event description

Description

BeeActive is one of the Health and Social Care projects within CityVerve which aims to you achieve your daily walking goals with the help of behaviour change ‘nudges’ whilst at the same time helping you to discover new things about the city of Manchester. CityVerve is a smart cities Internet of Things (IoT) demonstrator project which aims to make Manchester a healthier and more efficient city for its citizens.

You can download the free BeeActive app onto your smartphone and be promoted to walk more in order to reach your personal daily steps goal and learn new things about this wonderful city of Manchester. The app will provide some simple ‘nudges’ such as asking you to accept or decline a ‘mission’ to go for a walk at lunchtime. In the future, BeeActive will provide more personal ‘nudges’. For example, if you usually takes the bus to work along Oxford Road, the app will detect the location when you are a few stops away from your usual bus stop and it will ‘nudge’ you to get off the bus and walk to work because it is a clear dry day, but traffic is busy up ahead and it will be quicker to walk than to stay on the bus, also getting you closer to your daily steps goal. This will demonstrate how IoT works by pulling information about location, the weather, traffic and transport together to provide personalised ‘nudges’ to change behaviour.

So why not come along to the BeeActive interactive workshop and demonstration to see this exciting use case in action?
