Let Your Dog Wear Wagr

By Shanosh Kumar


Mixing the above-said information with the analytics part in the background crunches data and analyses it against such parameters in real time. Apache Prediction IO is the tool of choice for the team; it is totally open source.

While dealing with analytical engines, challenges were encountered such as pushing and processing data to the analytics engine and trying to stream in data real time. It had to be based on data from animal movements and orientation, which is a time-consuming process. Once the prebuilt evaluation measure was set and data from wearables started flowing through priority based connectivity based on distance during the earlier days, the team tasted success.

The data now had to be represented in a meaningful yet interactive form, which the mobile application development team took care off. The application features a built-in map, a social networking platform, assistance services and a shopping cart. You can download this application and start syncing the wearable instantly, until the profile of the pet dog pops up on the smartphone screen saying “Hi.”

Louder than words

Wagr’s ecosystem has a photo-driven social platform that could be used to access dog-related services such as vets, food, supplies, accessories, boarding, grooming, dog walkers and dog sitters. The platform brings active communities of dog-parents closer.

Leveraging this sharing capability through social community groups built into the application, long-term goals that its founders had in mind of co-existing with these lovable creatures could be fulfilled. These include adoption/rehabilitation, training tips and even rescues, all in real time.

Wagr is available across India through registration on its website (www.wagr.in). Thanks to the IoT and the value chain it creates, young and innovative technology community is finding new ways to add value to everyone who shares our planet.
