The Infalurt Child Safety System for automotive vehicles monitors and alerts you if you leave a child in a vehicle. It is a finalist in the Good Design Australia Awards 2021 Sport and Lifestyle category.

We are very pleased to have contributed to this technically challenging project which required all the following features to be delivered simultaneously:

  • low power battery operated electronics
  • Made in Australia
  • capacitive presence sensing
  • ISM radio communications

The system works by sensing a child in a car seat or baby capsule, the vehicle itself and provides alerts on a fob carried on you key ring.

So it not only has to be well designed form the Electronics Design and Embedded Software Development perspective but also the Industrial Design and Design For Manufacture.

The capacitive presence sensing was particularly challenging as a custom sensor design challenge because unlike capacitive touch sensing on mobile phones, this is not looking for a sudden change but a continuous presence over time.

And all of this with a target of 12 months battery life from standard AA cells.
