I understand the technical application - but you don't DIY lifesaving technology - it won't be built to the same fail-safe and tolerances of real medical equipment. Would you trust your doctors or paramedics to use unverified equipment that could give false output?

Step one. DO NOT FORGET YOUR CHILD IN A CAR EVER. It's your CHILD not a set of keys.
Step two. EVER.

A solution will be better parenting. If someone walks out of the car and "forgets" a child in the car, I think it is time to call the state child services and put the child with better care.

Better low tech solution--- tie a string around their leg and the other end around your neck. You will not forget that way.

That was seriously my idea before reading any of these comments.

I'm guessing that those parents are not forgetting their child. I'm guessing they are intentionally leaving them in there while they do something like shopping, etc. so that it is easier. Since the baby has to be carried it's the one they choose to leave. A system like this can't cure lazy or stupid, they will just ignore it since they know full well that the baby is still in the car.

I'll I also go out on a limb and say that when they leave their baby in the car, on purpose, and it dies that the parent is going to say they "forgot" the child since that looks marginally better than intentionally leaving them. At least in the US it would likely result in lesser charges if it was seen as an accident rather than intentional.

...Wait, seriously?
There are plenty of tags that are used to prevent people forgetting car keys and phones (Cobra Tag for example: http://cobratag.com/). I suppose you could hang one of those from your child. But seriously, you seed a device so you don't forget your baby in the car?
