BLE based cat tracking is taking shape. Spot tells me I still have to work on the ergonomics.

@map is the goal to locate them in the apartment? So in which room they are?

@plaetzchen triangulating the signal and maybe some machine learning on top for guessing the location.


@map I always played around with that idea but my cats would never wear a collar. So I thought about using their chip implants but that require some kind of gateway in the doorways or something.

@plaetzchen yeah I looked into that too. And the equipment is more pricy. Positive reinforcement and patience should work with most cats though.

@map I should but mine are now 5 years with us and they wouldn’t even allow us to lift them, not even thinking of holding them. They were born wild and lived at the shelter for quite some time. Took as year to be able to pet them even slightly. Not sure if I want to do all that training for such a thing
