Kenny Devlieger is a smart guy behind Gabriel Heat Stroke Prevention Device. Do you know that every summer in Europe/USA, there are an average of 20 children die from heat stroke because parents leave them inside a car? It can happen to anyone even though you are sure something like this would never happen to you. This car device helps to watch your child while you get off the car for few minutes. This invention was submitted as part of the Opel Smart Options project and Opel really loved this idea and later perfected the concept with the help from LDV United and Achilles Design.
It consists of 2 set of devices: pressure sensitive mat and a compact small key ring device. They are connected wirelessly to inform the driver whenever he/she leaves the car and forgetting about their child, thus leaving the child seat occupied, it triggers an alert for the driver. It doesn’t stop there, the pressure sensitive mat that fits for most standard child seat keeps on measuring the temperature inside the car, once the temperature reaches higher than 28-degree Celsius, the key ring once again alerts the driver to immediately get back to the car. The goal of this project is to create a live-saving device, it’s been designed and developed to be compatible with any vehicle.
