The tidiness of an environment can provide important information about individuals who are involved in the target environment, such as their behavior, health and mental condition. In this paper, we describe a vision-based approach for measuring tidiness and persuading users to be tidy. Tidiness measurement is based on analyzing changes in an image series and comparing them to an image from an ideally ordered environment. The persuasion process will be carried out by a combination of notifications and rankings. The existing personal and social communication channels of users, such as email and social networking accounts will be employed to persuade them to change their behavior and be-come more obliged to tidiness.
