Hoping to understand your lovely dog’s “Woof woof” or “awoo”? It is now possible, a South Korean startup (a newly established business) has developed an AI-powered smart dog collar that can translate your dog’s bark for you to understand.
Petpuls collar is an AI-powered dog collar that analyzes the tone and pitch of your dog’s bark to track its mood. It can detect five emotions (happy, relaxed, nervous, angry, or sad) in canines by monitoring their barks using voice recognition technology.
Launched in October 2020, the device identifies if your dog is happy, relaxed, nervous, angry, or sad on a mobile app synced to the collar via WiFi.
“This device gives a dog a voice so that humans can understand,” Andrew Gil, Petpuls Lab’s director of global marketing, told Reuters.
Back in 2017, the company starts gathering different types of barks to analyze dog’s emotions. Three years later with more than 10,000 samples from 50 breeds of dogs, they developed a proprietary algorithm that can now analyze a dog’s emotions.
Based on Seoul National University study the Petpuls collar has a 90 percent average accuracy rate of emotional recognition.
You can track your dog’s emotional status and physical activity through Petpuls Smartphone App available on iOS and Android smartphone, the only thing you need is to connect the collar to the Wi-Fi and pair it to the app.
