In collaboration with UK charity Dogs for Good, the project aims to improve the welfare, training and performance of mobility assistance dogs by researching, designign and deploying a range of wireless controls, which are consistent with the sensory, cognitive and physical characteristics of dogs, and that can be retrofitted to make domestic and public environments more accessible to canine users and their assisted humans. These controls have shown to significantly improve the dogsí working conditions, training times and performance.
