Technology to help understand dogs

Do you wonder if your pet is physically okay? Are you worried about the emotional stress levels of your pooch? Don’t worry! Here is help!!

North Carolina State University in the US has been successful in developing a platform for computer mediated communication between humans and their beloved pets. This one of a kind breakthrough will open avenues for pet parents to interpret their pooches behavioural and emotional cues. According to the co - lead author David Roberts, a dog harness, the size of the a deck of cards, with incorporated speakers and vibrating motors called haptics transmits data about the dogs - whether they are sitting, standing or running - wirelessly. The collected data can be interpreted and communicated and further conveyed through a software which will translate human requests into signals on the harness. The technology also includes physiological sensors that monitor the heart rate and body temperature of the dog and can track the dog’s physical and emotional well being.

This technology can find its application in a variety of activities - whether its search & rescue or therapy/service dogs or even training your pet. The researchers at present are refining the design and explore applications on the platform. The findings have been published in the Journal IEEE Intelligent Systems.
