Technology to prevent vehicular hyperthermia

Sensorsafe is a technology found in some Evenflo car seats. There is a socket located inside a vehicle that accesses various vehicle subsystems where small receivers, like the one attached to this product can be installed to tap into a car’s computer system. The receiver communicates with the car seat’s smart chest clip – letting the driver know whether a child is still in the seat after the car is turned off.
Driver’s Little Helper Sensor System is a sensor system sold at major retailers that can be put in a car seat. The sensor goes under the car seat padding and is attached to a battery pack and synced with an app. Users can set when they want the app to send you notifications after the car is stopped.

The Waze traffic app has a setting that will remind a driver to check his or her back seat when a destination entered into the app is reached. While it won’t alert a driver during an impromptu stop. As Faris pulled into the driveway for her Waze destination, she received an alert before she turned off the car: “Check your car before you leave.”

Sense a Life is a device made from two Tampa fathers, developed to use wireless technology to relay information from a small pad that goes under a car seat to the user’s phone. The seat pad activates when the child is in the car seat and when the driver leaves the vehicle and a child is still in the seat it sends a message to the user’s phone.
