Sleepypod has introduced CLEO, an innovative crash test cat for testing pet safety in cars.
CLEO features a camera that records video footage from the pet’s point of view. It is the next member of Sleepypod’s family of crash test pets designed to help the company gather safety data for the development of pet travel products.
This new crash test technology signals the future of pet safety in cars by recording video footage of crash tests. With footage from CLEO, Sleepypod designers can see what a pet sees and record how a pet moves during a car crash.
“As Sleepypod explores new approaches to pet safety in cars, recording the movements of CLEO in simulated car crashes allows our designers to peer from behind a pet safety restraint and view a crash from a pet’s point of view,” said Michael Leung, Sleepypod’s lead product designer and co-founder. “This is a step forward for pet safety in cars because until now we have only been able to observe the effects of car crashes as onlookers.”
