Good sleep can positively affect our performance, while a lack of sleep can affect our memory, immune system, cognitive functioning, learning abilities, and alertness. Researchers have thus investigated numerous technologies and approaches to monitor individuals' sleep behavior at home. One goal of such technologies is to collect information that can increase users' awareness of their sleep habits to persuade them to adopt healthier routines. This department looks at new products in this space, ranging from smart alarm clocks to advanced monitoring devices.
