Development Plan of Pet Dog Safe Transportation System Using IP-RFID

Authors:

Abstract

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.
... For example, one of the major pet shipping companies in the EU found owners reluctant to fly their dogs and cats as they fear a lack of health control by competent authorities on animals travelling in plane holds with excess baggage (SANCO 2013(SANCO /12364 2015. To address owners' concerns, innovative systems are being developed to offer realtime monitoring of pet status during transport (Choi et al. 2011;Gan et al. 2019). However, more studies on the effects of air transport on pet health and welfare are needed. ...

Commercial activities involving dogs and cats have become increasingly important and contribute significantly to the European economy. One of the most important activities is undoubtedly their translocation for commercial purposes. This is governed by the Council Regulation (EC) No. 1/2005 on the protection of animals during transport and related operations and amending Directives 64/432/EEC and 93/119/EC and Regulation (EC) No. 1255/97. Unfortunately, Regulation EC No. 1/2005 reports only a few specific mentions of companion animals. Since scientific studies on the effects of transport on the welfare of dogs and cats are scarce, much of the available information is in the form of recommendations based on practical experience, rather than evidence-based research. Up to date, the effects of food and water deprivation, the use of some drugs (e.g. sedatives and anxiolytics), or weather impacts on companion animal health and welfare during transport are still a matter of debate. Therefore, the aim of this narrative review is to summarise the European Regulation on dog and cat welfare during transport, suggesting possible implementation, and to document the negative effects of transportation, suggesting how to mitigate them based on scientific evidence. To date, habituation to containers and travelling, particularly using positive reinforcement training, seems to be the most effective strategy to reduce transport stress in these animals. However, still many gaps of knowledge are present and further studies are needed. This review may be useful for all people involved in the companion animal industry. • Highlights • Pet commercial transportation is a growing reality. • Pets should be trained to become familiar with containers and journeys. • More research on the effects of transportation of pets is needed. • The Regulation EC 1/2005 should be revised using research-based evidence.

The nature of port logistics requires global visibility and traceability. However, the traditional RFID technology still applied cannot meet these demands. IP-USN and M2M in port logistics have faced challenges of the prerequisite of network composition and immense communications at the base where a grand number of containers are installed. To resolve the issue, this study suggests an IP-RFID-based smart port logistics service platform. The IP-RFID-based port logistics service system resolved the communication problem by separating the RFID tag and AP, which allows internet connection, from the tag. The tags connected with thermo-sensors, humidity sensors, pressure sensors, GPS, etc. are attached to the containers insuring global visibility and traceability, key factors in logistics, by obtaining desired real-time information regardless of time and location.

All industrial Products of today are various demand of customers and are switchovered the manufacturing system of a small quantity batch production. Its life cycle was very shortened. An enterprise is improved to satisfaction with external customers and internal customers of infinity competition time. They can exist on achieving customer satisfaction management. In this paper, a new implementation of service information system (SIS) with real time using RFID and X-Internet in Ubiquitous environments is proposed. The proposed SIS system has Web architecture based on XML and has a new X-Internet environment overcoming limitation of Client/server architecture. The service information system analyze its material data and suppress the same CLAIM creation. The implementation method of real time SIS system using RFID and X-Internet is proposed for contribution of business market reducing F-Cost.
