Google has invented a new baby monitor that is capable of alerting the parents before baby wakes up
Baby monitors can keeps the parents alert to their baby’s cries by a radio-like crackles but today,with google’s new invention, the designs are upgraded.
The latest technology incorporates everything from motion sensor, video and temperature gauge.
The most amazing part is that Google is considering using an artificial intelligence to keep a child safe while the parent is away.
According the Parent Application Form filled by Google, this new device will determine when the child is in a state of non auditory discomfort, and will be able to alert the parents or caregivers up to 10 minutes ahead.
An eye-tracking technology would also detect when a baby is awake, asleep or close to stirring.
Using video streaming, audio recordings andAI, the device would monitor the baby’s behavior against a database of normal patterns.
Based on the infant’s movements and any noise it makes, it would detect anything out of character and subsequently issue an alert if the baby appears uncomfortable.
It would also take into account the baby’s position, whether he or she is lying down, kneeling, standing up or otherwise.
“While a baby’s cry may alert his parents to the baby being in distress, sometimes a baby will not audibly indicate his distress. For example, if the baby is tossing in his sleep, is awake and moving around when the baby is expected to be asleep, or worse, is choking, tangled in bedding, or otherwise is in a dangerous position, the baby is in distress but may not be crying.
“Therefore, in some circumstances, a parent may wish to be alerted to the occurrence of such a worrisome situation.” The Parent App Form States.
Google’s spokeperson who spoke with CNN said, “We file patent applications on a variety of ideas that our employees come up with. Some of those ideas later mature into real products or services, some don’t. Prospective product announcements should not necessarily be inferred from our patent applications.”
