This paper concerns a wireless control system (WCS) for pet dogs using wireless sensor networks (WSNs) in a residential environment. The developed WCS is composed of a central control system, a wireless auto-feeder, a small-sized guidance robot, and wireless sensing devices. The developed system uses luminance, temperature, and sound data from a pet dog and the surrounding environment. The presented design method provides an efficient way to control and monitor the pet dog using WSNs. The implemented system can be used as a design framework of portable devices for pet dog control within a residential network.
