Nordson Dage and the Irish Guide Dogs for the Blind

A recent documentary shown on Irish television, featured the Nordson Dage Diamond X-ray inspection system. It was being used in a project called Guide Dog 4.0.  This Tyndall and Irish Guide Dogs for the Blind (IGDB) project is designed to support IGDB in identifying potential Guide and Assistance Dogs earlier in the training process and in turn help shorten the period taken to train a Guide or Assistance Dog.

The Tyndall Institute is a scientific research institute, specialists in nanotechnology. They are the only organisation in the world using nanotechnology research to assist guide dog training. They are using the Nordson Dage Diamond X-ray to develop the sensor for this unique project.

Irish Guide Dogs for the Blind is a national charity which provides vital services to blind or vision-impaired people and families of children with autism to enable them to achieve increased mobility, independence and an improved quality of life.

The Guide Dog 4.0 project is looking at sensor based wearable technology that will isolate specific data readings from potential guide dogs. This data will then support trainers in better understanding the dog’s behaviour leading to better outcomes from the training process and reduce the amount of time which clients will wait for this life changing service.
