What does SaveOurLovedOnes do?
Our product, SaveOurLovedOnes™, is a device created in 2017 by Carol Staninger with the aim of saving the lives of children left behind in hot cars, who otherwise would succumb to hyperthermia. These tragedies have occurred hundreds of times over the years and our goal is to end this problem.
Our motto: “Our success is measured by the lives we save.” – Carol Staninger, creator
Other applications to SaveOurLovedOnes™ include use with seniors, pets and the physically challenged. It uses sensor technology to detect breathing within the passenger compartment of any vehicle for signs of life and will sound a loud alarm in a Morse Code S.O.S. cadence, while flashing lights, too. Anyone within the vicinity of a car with a child, or pet, trapped inside will be alerted and will know to act. We envision SaveOurLovedOnes™, to be a mandatory child-safety device to be installed in all autos and trucks manufactured in the U.S., much the same way the seat belt or air bags became mandatory.
A unique method of detection has been employed at the front end of the system. This method shall detect presence by movement or in the event of the occupant sleeping, detect the breathing motion.
The alarm, both optical and audible, shall be raised when occupants have been detected, to alert the responsible person and/or persons within the vicinity of the vehicle.
The alarm shall be in the form of a sounder, being the same loudness as a car horn and a high intensity flashing light. Both forms of alert shall use the cadence of Morse Code “SOS”.
Occupant detection and alarm modes shall only be initialized when the driver or responsible guardian is out of range of the vehicle. A small, unobtrusive device, shall be carried by the responsible person which the product shall detect and arm/disarm the system as necessary, pending proximity to the vehicle.
Conditional monitoring and resultant actions shall be managed by the micro-controller where proprietary code, unique to the product, is developed and programmed into the system.
