PetDialog+ is the next generation of pet wellness monitors by Zoetis Centre for Digital Innovation. It is a small, non-invasive accelerometer that is worn on the collar, acting as more than just an activity monitor to establish a dog’s behavioural rhythms.
PetDialog+ collects data from your pet and provides a holistic viewpoint of a pet’s wellbeing. Unlike most pet monitors currently on the market, PetDialog+ tracks more than just motion but tracks a wide range of data points that it translates into behavioural states which can signal and flag potential problems before they arise.
PetDialog+ is a tri-axial accelerometer that detects movement patterns in three planes and transfers kinetic data via Bluetooth 4.0 to a paired smartphone which, in turn, transmits data to a Cloud data storage system. This data is gathered 24/7, 7 days a week and is processed by algorithms into one of eight predefined behavioural states:
Static / Inactive
Internal validation was performed based on data from Oggway ltd, Tel Aviv, Israel. This involved short sequential, targeted behavioural tracking aimed to train the device and include split-sample validation.
vHive performed external validation was performed as fully independent of University of Surrey and Zoetis Centre for Digital Innovation with a different population and breed mix
