Abstract

Finding time and energy for playing with dogs can be difficult. Elderly or physically disabled dog owners may lack the strength or endurance to train and exercise their pets. Our FIDO project designed a tennis ball throwing center to entertain a dog. It focuses on the overall design and performance of a new product. Mechanical systems for elevation, rotation and launching of a tennis ball were analyzed and studied for fast operations, and the overall footprint was decreased.
