The concept for this project was to give a value add for a new kennels business. The kennels would offer a large indoor recreational pound with different levels.
Owners would be able to log on via the Internet (eg. From holiday location) and see their dog via a webcam.
However, there were a few challenges:
- need to work indoors - so some form of detection required at distances typical inside buildings
- Will need to find dogs in the large pound potentially at different heights - so detection and motor control in 3 dimensions
- Will need to distinguish between dogs - any tags would need to small and discrete
