Abstract

Maintaining hand hygiene is the one of the most effective way to prevent the spread of germs during a pandemic. This paper focuses on encouraging people to use a hand sanitizer more frequently by applying the nudge theory to improve hand hygiene behavior in private organizations. We propose a system that recognizes hand hygiene behavior using face recognition and detects hand sanitizer use. The system responds to the user's personal hand hygiene behavior with animation of a virtual bonsai as an interactive agent. To preserve user privacy, we implemented the system on an edge device and conducted experiments for 4 case studies in 2 real-world organizations. The results showed that the system improved the hand hygiene behavior of people in a private organization.
