Noise-Cancelling Kennel by Ford
Everyone knows that the bangs and whistles of fireworks can be a nightmare for many pets, especially dogs. The reason is due to their ultra sensitive hearing which transforms the noise of fireworks into a cacophony of aggressive sounds. The solution? A Noise-Cancelling Kennel brought to you by American car-maker Ford.
Combining automotive know-how with clever design, Ford have created a doghouse composed of noise cancellation panels, active noise control, anti-vibration block risers, and soundproof ventilation. Inspired by the active noise control technology currently found in Ford’s Edge SUV, microphones inside the kennel detect loud noises and counteracts them by transmitting opposing frequencies from a built-in audio system.
The Noise-Cancelling Kennel is the first project in Ford’s Interventions series – an initiative which aims to bring automotive technology and innovation into our daily lives. “We wondered how the technologies we use in our cars could help people in other situations,” shares Ford’s European brand content manager, Lyn West. “Making sure dogs and their owners could enjoy a stress-free New Year’s Eve seemed like the perfect application for our Active Noise Control system.”
