Intelligent Jogging Scheduling System

Jogging is a popular form of healthy exercise activity; however, studies have shown that jogging too much or concentrating multiple jogging sessions into a few days (e.g., only Monday-Friday, while not exercising on the weekends) can be harmful to a person’s overall health. A person’s body must have time to recover between runs and the recovery time varies among different people. Ideally, a person should split the jogging activities evenly over a week, but this is difficult when a person has a busy schedule.

A system is needed that can personalize a user’s jogging activities based on the different aspects of the user’s calendar arrangements and personal body condition.

The novel contribution is an intelligent system for scheduling a user's jogging activities. The system dynamically considers a number of factors and then accordingly schedules the user’s jogging activities. Factors include (but are not limited to):

· User's health condition · User’s level of fatigue/tiredness · Weather conditions · User’s calendar arrangements/schedule (e.g., whether the user has an upcoming

face-to-face meeting, is presenting in front of a big crowd, or a has a remote conference call affects how much time a user has available to run and prepare for a meeting)

· User's jogging history · Traffic conditions

The system helps the user with appropriate breathing levels and appearance for an upcoming in-person meeting or remote meeting before or after the jogging activity. The system can help the user avoid overdoing jogging activities. It can schedule jogging activities with the right intensive level. The system only recommends usable paths.

The system allows the user to increase intensity levels or length during jogging, when user indicates that more time is available for jogging. The system can share input from friends/family on a social network, map the user’s level of fitness, and match friends with similar levels of fitness and activity interest. The system can suggest favorite music themes, audio books, link to streaming music, etc. if the user jogs alone. The user interface of the system can use augmented reality (AR) to make the jogging experience more vivid*.

To implement the system in a preferred embodiment, the system is accessible through a specialized smart phone application (app). It only schedules the jogging activities within the current day. The workflow is:

1. The user opens the app for scheduling a jogging activity within the day 2. The system checks the user's latest health information (via a cloud-based

healthcare information exchange) to determine if the user is suitable for a jogging activity

3. The system identifies an available time slot on user's calendar within the day 4. The system reviews the workload of the user's recent jogging activity and

calculates the maximum intensity level and length (systems and methods for administering an exercise program)

A. The system carefully evaluates user's current...
