Abstract

We are finding a dog’s heart rate with a heart rate monitor with GPS to monitor its health and location. We tested using an apple watch on the dog to see if we could detect the heart rate that way. It was unsuccessful initially, but it looked like it had the promise to work. One of the reasons that we think it didn’t work at first was because of the green light sensor. We looked into and researched the green light sensor to find out how it works. We found out that the green light sensor that works on the skin. So the next problem to solve would be to make a device that can separate the fur enough to have the sensor see the skin and tell us if it would work. We could shave a little part of the dog so that the sensor could see its skin. We did this but realized that if we wanted this to work for any size dog, we would need to make the collar either in different sizes to accommodate the dog's size or to make a band that would be able to be adjusted to fit around any dog's neck. We created our own DIY smart watch collar that utilizes GPS and the sensor to monitor the dog's heart rate. If this works, we plan on extending it and working on sensing other aspects of the dog, like its temperature.
