The client is a new entrant in the pet industry (also known as Petconomy in the Asian market. Their organization provides pet-focused software solutions to aid pet-parents with different aspects of their pet’s mental & physical health.
This AI-based application was their vision to provide food-related health assistance to pet parents.
We have adopted the Agile SDLC model to develop ‘AI for Pets’. Agile being an iterative and incremental process focuses on customer satisfaction and the rapid delivery of working software products.
The product consists of 3 modules as described below.
The electronic dish on which the pet’s food is placed was developed in this module
Mobile application development
A Mobile Application wherein customers can navigate and access all the information regarding the product and their pets were developed.
Incorporation of Artificial intelligence
AI not only helps the product to recognize the food preferences of pets, picks pet's favorite food for delivery but also most importantly detects early health symptoms.
The food is placed on the dish and after the Stock Keeping Unit (SKU) of the food is scanned.
The integrated camera captures the likeness & behavior of pets towards the food.
The AI predicts the liked foods and orders the same for home delivery.
A spontaneous meal pattern is created which helps the product to automatically order pet’s favourite food after every 10 days.
