DOGO GPS collar / dog tracking collar generated by dog's movement

DOGO GPS collar
DOGO GPS collar

DOGO is a GPS dog collar generated by dog’s movements, transforming kinetic energy into electricity that GPS needs.
When the dog running, even walking, their movement would change the gravity centre of a magnet inside and drive the magnet move up and down. As a result, the magnet inside cuts the magnetic field and create electricity. The electricity is collected and stored in a capacitor (here I use a rechargeable battery) to drive a GPS chip, which gives the position data to a dog tracking APP on the dog owner’s phone.
DOGO is designed dog owners to prevent dog missing, by transforming the owner’s finding process from passive into active.
