Abstract

Earlier research investigating persuasive technology—technology designed to influence human behavior or attitude—indicates that persuasive technology can stimulate energy-efficient behavior. However, most applications of persuasive technology need people’s focal attention to be successful, and people may often not have these cognitive resources available. The current research investigates a form of persuasive technology that is less obvious and easier to process: ambient lighting as persuasive technology. In an experimental study, participants could conserve energy while setting temperatures on a central heating panel and ...
