Child Presence Detection System with AI

article imageMarquardt has developed a system that reliably detects whether a child is in the vehicle. The system can recognize the vital signs of the occupants and accurately relay this information to the vehicle's electronics. By analyzing this data, the system can assess the occupant's state of health and, with the integration of additional sensor technology, even approximate their age. This breakthrough enables the triggering of emergency warnings when necessary, which can occur in several steps, depending on the vital information, and may ultimately involve forwarding the data to emergency services.
