  • Patent number: 11023844
    Abstract: A system includes a biological sensor measuring biological data of a plurality of customers, a storage storing a plurality of attendant-associated data records, and a processor. Each attendant-associated data record includes the biological data of a customer, a seat identifier, and an attendant identifier associated with each other. The processor calculates at least one stress indicator of at least one customer. Each stress indicator is calculated based on the biological data in one of at least one attendant-associated data record extracted from the plurality of attendant-associated data records and associated with a first attendant identifier. The processor further calculates an evaluation value indicated by the first attendant identifier based on the at least one stress indicator of the at least one customer. The evaluation value is updated based on a registered evaluation value identified by the first attendant identifier stored in the storage, and the calculated stress indicator.

  • Patent number: 10959657
    Abstract: A stress management system comprises: a first sensor that detects biological data of a user; a second sensor that detects life log data indicating an action history of the user; a generator that generates stress data using the biological data, the stress data indicating a time series variation of a stress level of the user; an estimator that, when the stress level of the user included in the stress data exceeds a first threshold, estimates whether or not stress of the user is interpersonal stress caused by contact with another person, using the life log data; and a notifier that notifies the user of a result of the estimation by the estimator and notifies a notification target person different from the user of notification content based on the result of the estimation by the estimator.
