Communication is going to the dogs...in a good way. New developments in technology are allowing humans to communicate with animals in groundbreaking ways. Now, taking your dog on a walk may provide an entirely new method for two-way communication. A new dog harness created by computer scientists can change the way people interact with animals. Beyond bow wow, pet owners and trainers can understand more of what’s in Fido’s mind than ever before.
A New Communication Platform
Dogs communicate primarily through body language and other subtle signals. North Carolina State University researchers have developed a suite of technologies that tap into these signals. The harness is outfitted with a variety of sensors which can determine the posture of the dog as well as whether it is sitting, standing or running.
