Sensing Solutions for Child Presence Detection in Cars
VitaSense – Interior radar sensing system to spot unattended children in vehicles
A child can end being unattended in a car. In the automotive industry, IEE recognized the problem of children left in vehicles and thus exposed to heatstroke risk more than a decade ago. We developed VitaSense Child Presence Detection to address this global issue and help prevent hot car deaths. In the US alone, 39 children die of vehicular heatstroke on average each year.
VitaSense is a highly accurate and reliable radar system made to detect even the vital signs of sleeping new-borns. When an unattended child is detected, the vehicle’s alarm and communications systems can alert caretakers or passers-by that a child is still present in the car, helping save lives.
How VitaSense works
- VitaSense is a small sensing unit, easy to integrate behind the vehicle headliner without altering the interior design
- Based on radar technology it emits low-power radio signals and analyses reflections
- The slightest motions of an occupant influence the signals, allowing VitaSense to discriminate between a living being and an inanimate object
- When an unattended child is spotted, VitaSense feeds the info into the vehicle system to send out various alert notifications
