Here are a few use cases for this project:

  1. Rodent Behavior Analysis: Researchers can use this model to study and analyze rat drinking patterns and their interactions with red water bottles in their homecage environment. This can offer valuable insights into rodent behavior and the effects of various stimuli such as housing conditions, stress factors or metabolic changes.

  2. Monitoring Animal Welfare: The model can be employed in monitoring animal welfare in laboratories or breeding facilities by tracking water and food intake. Early identification of insufficient water or food consumption can signal a potential health issue, allowing caretakers to take proactive measures to ensure the rats' wellbeing.

  3. Testing Hydration Strategies: This computer vision model can be used in experiments to evaluate the efficacy of different hydration strategies on rats. By comparing their interactions with red water bottles and how much they drink, researchers can assess the impact of environmental factors or supplements on rat hydration levels.

  4. Drug Administration Studies: Researchers can utilize this model to monitor how rats interact with water bottles containing medications or experimental drugs. This can provide valuable information regarding drug administration, dosage, and the rats' willingness to consume the treated water, enabling more effective pharmaceutical research.

  5. Nutritional Studies: The model can also be employed in assessing the rats' responses to different types of food pellets or dietary changes, offering insights into their preferences and consumption patterns. This information can be valuable for designing better diets and ensuring that rats receive proper nutrition for better health and wellbeing.
