The Challenges of Wearable Computing for Working Dogs
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2015-09)
We present two case studies on creating wearables for dogs and discuss them in terms of challenges of safety, space, weight and comfort, that motivated them. You can use these case studies and our design process as a ...
Assessment of Working Dog Suitability from Quantimetric Data
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2014-10)
We propose new approaches to assessing the suitability of potential working dogs for a given occupation. The main focus is placed on continuously-recording technology that does not rely on constant human observation. ...
Towards a Canine-Human Communication System Based on Head Gestures
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2015-11)
We explored symbolic canine-human communication for working dogs through the use of canine head gestures. We identified a set of seven criteria for selecting head gestures and identified the first four deserving further ...
Canine Reachability of Snout-based Wearable Inputs
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2014-09)
We designed an experiment with the goal of assessing wearable reachability for canines. We investigated the effect of placement on the ability of dogs to reach on-body interfaces with their snouts. In our pilot study, seven ...
Wearable Alert System for Mobility-Assistance Service Dogs
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2015-10)
We present a study of a wearable alert system for mobility-assistance dogs. Our focus in this study is on assessing sensor and dog activation reliability for the purpose of understanding both system and dog training ...
