Development Plan of Pet Dog Safe Transportation System Using IP-RFID
Since the numbers of single-person family and nuclear family increase, the pet market is getting bigger to meet the increasing demand of pet purchase. Different from other cargos, the pet transportation requires real-time monitoring of pet status. However, at present, there is no monitoring system on pet during transportation. In fact, there are many incidents of pets dying after the transportation because of the stress they had suffered caused by the problems that had occurred during transportation which remain unknown and unidentified. This study suggests a system that can monitor the location and environment information of pet dog during its transportation using IP-RFID. This system enables the real-time remote-monitoring of pet dog situation while being transported using Internet Protocol communication. In addition, the system also enables to take immediate actions on the problematic issues by bidirectional communication. It is expected that pet dogs would be transported in safe and comfortable manner without stress if this system would be realized and be used.
