Teaching dogs to communicate with humans

I came across this interesting technology to communicate with dogs that I just had to share. A research team at Georgia Tech has come up with the idea of creating a high-tech vest for assistance dogs to better communicate with their owners. The project is called FIDO (Facilitating Interactions for Dogs with Occupations). The vests come equipped with sensors they are working on training dogs to activate through tugging, biting, and touching with their nose. Moreover, the vests can be equipped with technology enabling the dogs to alert doctors in the event of an emergency. Very cool!
