The Petpuls collar informs the dog’s owner via a smartphone app whether the animal is happy, calm, excited, angry or sad. The collar monitors the dog’s physical activity and also monitors his rest.
“This collar gives the dog a sound that humans can understand,” explained Andrew Gil, global marking director at Petpuls Lab.
The company began collecting various dog barkings in 2017 to analyze the emotional state of the dogs from them. Three years later, they developed their own algorithm based on a database of tens of thousands of barking samples from 50 dog breeds. The collar recognizes the dog’s emotional state with 90 percent accuracy, says the Seoul National University, which tested the device. The device is the first of its kind in the company, based on the voice recognition technology of artificial intelligence.
Petpuls Lab began selling the collar online in October for $ 99. The global dog population grew 18 percent last year to 489 million individuals.
“More and more people are adopting dogs, but unfortunately they sometimes get rid of them because they don’t understand the animal. Petpuls can play an important role during a pandemic because it can help owners understand how dogs feel and increase their attachment, ”the makers stressed.
