Abstract

Leaving children unattended in car for few moments, especially in hot atmosphere can cause a catastrophic tragedy to occur. Even young children can die of hyperthermia after being left in hot cars for a period of time. This paper presents HACC (Hyperthermia Alert for Children in Cars) system to help in preventing tragic child death caused by hyperthermia using detection and control system inside car. HACC system has been accomplished by developing a phone application and a surveillance system connected together to monitor temperature and presence of a child inside car. The system starts to measure temperature inside car via temperature sensor. At the same time, it checks constantly the presence of child inside car via motion sensor. When system detects the presence of a child and temperature inside car reaches unsafe limit, it alerts caregiver via smartphone application and allows him/her at the same time to take an action and open windows remotely. If there is no response from caregiver, system itself reacts and windows are opened automatically.
