Device to monitor the backseat of a car for child or pet presence

The Charles R. Drew Senior Charter Academy InvenTeam invented a child and pet detection and alert system for cars. The system detects if a child or pet is inside a car using infrared sensors. Upon detection, an alert SMS text message is sent to the driver’s cell phone.  If the temperature inside the car reaches 95F, a voice alarm for individuals in the vicinity is activated. Finally, if the temperature inside the vehicle reaches 100F, a GPS location of the vehicle is sent to emergency management notifying them of the emergency.
