SmartLife project is finishing its first year. During 2 017, different activities have been accomplished. Defining the requirements was the first, followed by game functionalities definition, intelligent garment, electronics, graphic environment, among others. The analysis of the data provided by the adolescents was very important for the project and informed the game design. A first version of the electronics and the sensors was developed to start the testing phase and the mock up trials with adolescents in Belgium. The trials gave us some helpful hints about how to conduct our developments. Besides, these sensors have been used during the design of the algorithms for movement detection and Activity Index. The algorithms and the sensors detect MVPA (Moderate to Vigorous Physical Activity) by variations of the Activity Index. These signals will be reported to the game so the game will adapt to the physical condition of the user.
