Tokyo, November 27, 2012 – Fujitsu announced the release of the Wandant() dog pedometer, based on motion-tracking technology(2) developed by Fujitsu Laboratories, and an associated cloud service(3) that supports health management for dogs-the first of its kind in the pet care industry.

“Wan” is Japanese for “woof”, while “dant” comes from the word “pendant”.
The Wandant consists of a three-axis acceleration sensor, thermo-hygrometer, FeliCa module, volatile memory, microcomputer, button battery, etc. It counts the number of paces of a dog and checks its living environment (temperature and humidity), so that the pet parent can use the data for ensuring the dog’s health, Fujitsu said. The pedometer, whose weight is 20g or less, is attached to a dog collar.
“This helps owners get a stronger sense of their dog’s health, while enabling communication with the dog.”
