Ford’s innovative noise-canceling kennel is really a dream for an incredible number of dogs who get startled by deafening noises like storms, doorbells, and New Year’s Eve fireworks.
Poor dogs. All they would like to do is enjoy the New Year’s Eve activities, however people have got this aggravating habit of constantly firing loud rockets into the night sky and throw fire crackers on the ground. At least they may have a little bit of respite soon due to an innovative prototype kennel created by Ford, that brings together noise-canceling technology, sound-dampening cork, and an automatic door to offer our dogs a near silent getaway from the celebrations.
“An estimated 45 percent of dogs in the UK show signs of fear when they hear fireworks – causing distress to owners and their families too,” the company explains in a new blog post. “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.”
It is actually a common issue all around the world. Canines pick up sound differently than human beings, and most get very easily startled by loud sounds. It can result in severe stress and anxiety and, in the most unfortunate of incidents, dogs may well escape their very own homes and run away in terror.
When microphones within the kennel detect the sound of fireworks, a integrated sound system emits opposing frequencies that Ford states drastically decreases or cancels out the cacophony.
The noise-cancelling kennel is very sadly not currently on the market, but Ford says it “is the first in a series of initiatives-called interventions-that applies automotive know-how to help solve everyday problems.”
