Ford designs noise-cancelling kennel for your dog (video)

Posted on Wednesday, December 19 2018 @ 17:00:58 CET by


Ford designers created a high-tech dog kennel that uses Active Noise Control technology. This kennel is a safe quiet space for man's best friend, it promises to block loud noises like fireworks by counteracting the noise with the opposing sound wave. Full details at Ford but it's unknown whether this prototype will ever be put into mass production.
An estimated 45 per cent of dogs in the UK show signs of fear when they hear fireworks – causing distress to owners and their families too.

One possible answer could be a noise-cancelling kennel that uses similar technology to that found in cars and headphones to protect sensitive canine ears and ensure owners do not have to banish their pets away from the rest of the family.

Once microphones inside the prototype kennel detect the sound of the fireworks, a built-in audio system emits opposing frequencies that in effect cancels out the noise completely – or at least reduces it significantly. High-density cork, ideal for sound proofing was an integral part of the design. The result? No more stress for your pet. A concept for now, but with the potential to mean a much better start to the year, both for your dog – and for you.
