The mediating role of Emotional State toward Pervasive IS adoption
Research in the field of adoption theories has been predominantly concerned with the work environment and cognitive factors affecting Behavioural Intention. However, the emerging class of Pervasive Information Systems develops within a much different context. The present study proposes a new approach for the examination of the individual user’s acceptance of technology, specifically for the class of Pervasive Information Systems. In particular, it examines the mediating role of Emotional State toward the individual acceptance of Pervasive Information Systems. The proposed research model was tested with data collected through an exploratory experiment (n=33) using a mobile Augmented Reality application. The results confirm the appropriateness of the developed instrument, the research model and that Performance Expectancy is the strongest predictor of user adoption, mediated through the user’s Emotional State as formed while interacting with the system.
