Dog's life

Cassim Ladha, Nils Hammerla, Emma Hughes, Patrick Olivier, Thomas Ploetz
2013 Proceedings of the 2013 ACM international joint conference on Pervasive and ubiquitous computing - UbiComp '13  
In this paper we have identified a set of activities, which are linked to behaviour traits that are relevant for a dog's wellbeing.  ...  Welfare assessments in dogs rely on objective observations of both frequency and variability of individual behaviour traits, which is often difficult to obtain in a dog's everyday life.  ...  Figure 1 . 1 Collar based sensor platform used for activity recognition. Overview of the dogs participating in the experiment.  ...

Dog Behavior Recognition Based on Multimodal Data from a Camera and Wearable Device

Jinah Kim, Nammee Moon
2022 Applied Sciences  
The method presented in this study can be applied for dog treatment or health monitoring, and it is expected to provide a simple way to estimate the amount of activity.  ...  This paper proposes multimodal data-based dog behavior recognition that fuses video and sensor data using a camera and a wearable device.  ...  Among them, the basic factor monitored in dogs in daily life is the dog's amount of activity, such as the number of steps it takes.  ...
