Tis’ the time of festive cheer and joy… but not for dogs. In fact, many people are gearing up for a season of fireworks and anxious pets. Its a December miracle then, that Ford has built a noise-cancelling doghouse offering pets some relief from the most manic month of the year. It’s quiet kennel prototype is a modern, minimalistic kennel designed to prevent your pup from feeling the fear of fireworks.
The kennel detects high levels of noise with built-in microphones and then emits opposite frequencies to cancel them out. “We wondered how the technologies we use in our cars could help people in other situations,” says Lyn West, brand content manager at Ford of Europe. “Making sure dogs and their owners could enjoy a stress-free New Year’s Eve seemed like the perfect application for our Active Noise Control system, and we have a few more ideas in progress as to how our everyday lives might benefit from a little Ford know-how.”
