Guardian Angel

Abstract

Every year an average of 39 children lose their lives from being left alone in heated cars, with 2018 and 2019 seeing two of the highest death counts. As the death rate continues to rise, there is still no accessible and cost-friendly solution for what seems like such an easily avoidable problem. The Guardian Angel presents a solution to this by implementing a system that will actively monitor and protect a child in their car seat. The Guardian Angel is an add-on device that attaches to any existing car seat and includes an Android app and emphasizes user-friendliness. The Guardian Angel first uses artificial intelligence to determine if a child is actually sitting in the car seat. If a child is in the seat, the parent is warned before leaving their vehicle. A SMS is also sent to the parent if they are far away from the vehicle. If the vehicle with the child inside starts to heat up, the parent has a short time to retrieve the child, otherwise the authorities are notified. With the Guardian Angel, countless children's lives will be saved.
