Despite the recent progresses in robotics, autonomous robots stillhave too many limitations to reliably help people with disabilities. On the otherhand, animals, and especially dogs, have already demonstrated great skills inassisting people in many daily situations. However, dogs also have their ownset of limitations. For example, they need to rest periodically, to be healthy(physically and psychologically), and it is difficult to control them remotely.This project aims to “augment” the service dog, by developing a system thatcompensates some of the dog weaknesses through a robotic device mounted onthe dog harness. The present article shows that the dog’s activity and someindexes of the animal emotional state can be successfully identified by thewearable device.
