Individuals and veterinarians can use this technology engineering. But how does this tool actually work? The latter takes into account five facial positions: the contour of the eyes, the contraction of the muzzle, the angle of the ears, the position of the whiskers, and that of the head. The application can even be used remotely for more specific tracking for example.
