Abstract
A tracking device attached to a canine that can relay information to both the handler of the canine via a wrist or forearm mounted remote monitor and a command coordination center is very useful for the purpose of documenting the movements of the canine for court/evidence purposes, verification of area(s) that have or have not been searched by a canine during deployments, safety, and situational awareness. A low cost, rugged, all-weather canine mounted wireless video and location streaming system is proposed by Intelligent Automation, Inc. We call it CAMEL (stands for Canine Mounted Encompassing Locator). CAMEL consists of a Canine Borne Unit, a Handler Borne Unit, and a Command Center Unit. CAMEL consists of a Canine Borne Unit, a Handler Borne Unit, and a Command Center Unit. The Canine Borne Unit comprises a rugged, all-weather, day/night camera; a Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver, an Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU), a medium range wireless transmitter, and a load bearing harness. The Handler Borne Unit is composed of a medium range wireless receiver, a processor board, a wrist or forearm mounted remote monitor, and a Long Term Evolution (LTE) cellular modem. The Command Center Unit consists of a remote monitor, a LTE modem, and an optional deployable LTE ground station (for operations in areas without commercial LTE coverage). A pair of the canine borne unit and the handler unit forms a minimum CAMEL system. A command center can support many teams of canines and handlers.
