Tesla wants to protect children in its cars

Electric vehicle manufacturer Tesla is developing an interactive short-distance sensor. Motion Detection can protect children by detecting children left in the car.

According to Reuters, the company is seeking approval from the US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to commercialize the technology, which uses an unlicensed millimeter wave sensor that allows it to perform better than current regulations. High power operation.

Tesla explained the technology as follows: The device can be used to reduce risks while deploying airbags, calling up seat belts, and strengthening anti-theft systems to protect children from heatstroke and protect occupants from injury.

Tesla (Tesla) plans to use the device to measure height to find the difference between adults and children. The device uses four transmitting antennas and three receiving antennas with frontal radars.

Compared with the seat weight detection system, it can help the vehicle to improve the airbag deployment more effectively in the event of an accident.

Tesla cited data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that found more than 50 children died from heat stroke in 2018 and 2019, mainly because one of them forgot about them.

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is seeking a public opinion on Tesla's orders by September 21, and it is unclear how these sensors will be integrated into Tesla cars.

Tesla uses internal and external sensors in its cars to implement various security measures.

For car owners who have to leave their pets for a few minutes, "doggy position" keeps the car at a comfortable temperature. In this sense, a message is displayed on the big screen in the middle of the bystanders telling them that you are and will be back soon.

On the other hand, "watch mode" allows the vehicle to use an external camera to closely monitor driving and identify potential threats to maintain its safety.

In the past few years, other automakers have also improved their technology. Reducing the number of children remaining in the car.

In 2018, Nissan built sensors in the Pathfinder to detect when the tailgate had been opened before driving. If the driver neglects to open the liftgate after parking the vehicle, the horn will beep several times. Reminder.

Likewise, GM has installed a feature called "Back Seat Reminder" that beeps and displays a message on the dashboard to remind the driver to check a child.
