Sensors on cats !

Published: October 9, 2014

We have launched a pilot study in collaboration with Laura Ozella and her team at the University of Torino, Italy.  We aim at instrumenting colonies of feral cats in the city of Torino with new proximity sensors programmed by the ISI Data Science Lab to operate in a fully distributed fashion. We will measure the social structure of feral cat colonies in urban settings, and put these data in relation to clinical and microbiological data on cats’ health and transmissible conditions. This pilot study is part of a broader study on animal health and environmental risk factors led by Laura Ozella.
