Two fathers from Tampa have come up with a technical solution to make sure parents don’t forget to check their child’s car seat, WTSP reported.
Fadi Shamma and Jim Friedman created Sense-A-Life, a sensor pad system. One pad goes under the child on his car or booster seat.
The child’s pad is activated when as little as 2 pounds is placed on it.
A second sensor goes under the driver’s seat and detects when the driver’s door is opened.
When the door opens, the main part of the system under the driver’s seat will alert the driver by playing the message, “Please remove the child from the seat.” It also sends an alert via an app to the driver’s phone.
