PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT THOROUGHBRED
This Internet of Things (IoT) product integrates multiple pet care functions into just one collar – tracking, training, pet doors, feeders, invisible fences and barking.
As the sole mechanical engineer, my mission was to design an aesthetically sleek enclosure that would accommodate all of these functions. Working with top telecommunications & software engineers from Verizon and Autodesk was a bonus.
Technology + processes:
▪ Plastics, metal stamping, machining
▪ Expansion modules and interactive tappable display screen
▪ On-collar battery recharging, microphone, speaker, LED lights
▪ WiFi, mobile app and data cloud service
▪ CAT M1 cellular, Bluetooth BLE and 900 MHz RF for GPS tracking
First modular open-platform smart collar for pets
