A new device detects when children or pets are left alone in a vehicle.
Called the in-Vehicle Life Presence Detector, the product comes from the intelligent sensors and analytic software experts at Olea Sensor Network.
This system includes a wireless, contactless device, which installs in the cabin of any vehicle over the door of the back seat.
The device is able to detect the presence of a living being in the vehicle cabin, even if the subject is motionless or sleeping, using Olea’s proprietary continuous vital sign detection technology.
It is designed to send an alert to the driver of the car after they are about to or have exited the vehicle. Additionally, it can be programmed to alert first responders in the absence of action by the caretaker.
“Heat stroke is the second leading cause of deaths in vehicles for children and according to the ASPCA, thousands of animals, even K-9 officers, succumb each year because they are left alone in vehicles.” explained Frank Morese, Olea CEO/CTO and Founder.
“Furthermore, pending legislation in the US may mandate installation of a warning device in all vehicles in an effort to prevent these deaths. The OleaVision technology lends itself to easy entrance into the automotive aftermarket, is as user friendly as a smoke detector and can be made very affordable for the consumer,” Morese said.
Olea Sensor Networks said it is seeking commercial partners and distributors to bring this technology to market.
