Whenever my dog heard my family over the laptop or phone, or their dogs, he would wag furiously picking up a toy and run to either myself talking/purring happily away, or to the … Continue reading Hello… Yes This is Dog.
If you love technology and dogs like me, then you've probably at some point wondered how to combine the two. With Arduino modules becoming ever more affordable and accessible, this blog post gives an account of using Passive Infrared (PIR), ultrasound and Infrared (IR) range sensors with these microcontrolers to enable technology to detect their … Continue reading How to Build Dog Detection Systems with Arduino
For a while now I have seen biometric tools that measure heartbeats in order to give an indication of an emotive state. Not only has biometrics been taken up in businesses to measure happiness and engagement at work but more recently they have been embedded into pet collars to help owners track their pet’s health and emotions … Continue reading Doguino: Using Arduino to Measure a Dogs Heartbeat
During my endeavour to facilitate dog interaction, part of this includes being able to sense a dog to allow for ordinary interactions through normal movements. Whilst I have previously made heart rate monitors for dogs with Arduino, this blog takes a step into sensing a dogs movement. Whilst this initially seems easy to do with items … Continue reading Doguino: Sensing a dogs movement with Arduino and PIRs
