APPLICATION OF SENSORY SYSTEMS TO MOVE DOGS WITH VISUAL IMPAIRMENT

Jana Klímová

Abstract


This study focuses on the sensory systems application in dog´s movements with visual impairment. The aim of this work was realization and design the production of orthotic instrument for the blind dog because of there has been nothing similar at the market available yet. The work has used non-invasive detection of the animal´s body measure. An instrument has been generated by using CAD software. By help of 3D printer, the virtual model has become real. The product has been cleansed and a system for gripping and for eye protectors has been applied. By studying different types of sensor for application we have decided to choose an ultrasonic position sensor which is harmless for dog´s hearing. A sensor has detected an approaching obstacle by using the Arduino platform. The obtained results and production of this device can be helpful in innovative development of finding new ways in animal´s rehabilitation as well as in rehabilitation of people.
