Approximately 60% of people kept or have kept pets, and a significant problem is the loss of pets. Thus, our group decided to design a product with a localization function such as a smart pet collar to address the pet loss issue. In order to verify whether such a product is feasible in the Chinese market, we have done a feasibility study. In Particular, we did a survey and interview. The data illustrated that more than 80% of them were willing to buy a smart collar for their pets. Moreover, according to this survey, we identified our target customers and set a detailed customer profile through an interview. In addition, we discovered that there are a few pet collars aimed to locate pets in the Chinese market. Therefore, this product has desirability and potential in China, and we can promote smart pet collars in the Chinese market. The early development of our smart pet collar included positioning functions. The GPS device is designed to use the existing button-shaped anti-lost tracker, and the button in the middle can connect the tracker to the equipped app so that the pet owner can check the exact location of the pet at all times. In addition, the security level of pet collars is very high. Only the face ID and fingerprint of the pet owner can unlock the collar. If a stranger wants to open the collar maliciously, an alarm will be triggered. When our positioning collar products began to have some sales and profit, we added the health monitoring technique into the collar to address the problem of pets’ health issues: pet owners can constantly monitor the pet’s heartbeat, breathing, exercise volume, and sleep conditions, etc. Moreover, a health report will be generated every week.
