Project Overview

Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) is responsible for thousands of deaths each year in developing countries. We would like to develop a low cost and highly reliable detection system that could alert nearby adults when breathing stops, giving them a chance to wake or resuscitate the infant. The device must be able to detects breathing pauses of 20 seconds or more and output an audible alarm signal when that happens. This semester, the team is also investigating potential telemedicine applications,and beginning to vet the previous prototype for potential manufacture.
