If you haven't seen my latest Hackster Projects, I provide more information about the specifics on the Home Page, and I link I provided that leads to the projects Hackster page. Right now in this blog, I will mostly be going over the motivations behind my projects and what I hope to achieve.
Since 1998, children especially under the age of 2, have been incredibly vulnerable to the dangers of heatstroke. In the year 2018, 52 children were reported dead after being trapped inside an overheated vehicle. Even with windows left slightly open, the temperature inside a car can increase by 20 degrees in 10 minutes, and 50 degrees in 30 minutes. For a child's body, which heats up to three to five times quicker, this is a serious problem. After reading an article articulating this exact problem, I was at first shocked and horrified. Shocked at how many fatalities there were, and horrified that there wasn’t a solution yet. Hopefully with this project, it will be the stepping stones to creating new safe and reliable devices to help ensure the safety of others and help future children from becoming trapped inside overheated vehicles.
