Scientists develop sensor to save children and pets from hot car deaths

Monday, November 11, 2019

Scientists in Canada have developed a sensor that detects and raises the alarm when children or pets are left alone in a car.

The device uses radar technology and artificial intelligence to trigger an alarm when an animal or child is detected alone in a vehicle, with the team behind the product saying it works with 100% accuracy.
The sensor, which measures just over an inch, would be attached to a vehicle's ceiling or rear-view mirror. Its radar signals would be reflected back by people or pets inside the car, and AI would then analyze the findings to determine whether to raise the alarm, according to the scientists at the University of Waterloo in Canada.
