Dogs communicate primarily through body language, and one of our challenges was to develop sensors that tell us about their behavior by observing their posture remotely, said Dr. David Roberts, assistant professor of computer science at NC state and co-author of the study. “So we can determine when they’re sitting, standing, running, etc., even when they’re out of sight- a harness-mounted computer the size of a deck of cards transmits those data wirelessly.”
