Outline

"Pet health monitor" is an IoT service that automatically tracks cat's health data related to urinary behaviors. As cats are prone to diseases relating to the urinary system, it is vital for cat owners to keep track of how much and how often their cats urinate. Using AI algorithm co-developed with veterinarian, the service helps to simplify the process of tracking abnormalities in these behaviors. A newly designed smart toilet obtains urinary behavior data, which is then analyzed and communicated to pet owner via a smartphone application in an easy-to-understand manner. Through this service, even owners who are not familiar with reading health data can observe the well-being of their cats more accurately, while being able to fully enjoy the time with their cats as usual.
