The Child Safety Car Alert System by Arduino is an integrated device that sends alerts to the driver if a child is left unintendedly in the car. The system is developed using the Arduino board which incorporates the integration between sensors and GSM module. This system uses pressure and motion sensors to detect the presence of a child located at the back seat of the vehicles. Meanwhile, the GSM or Global System for Mobile Communication allows the system to send an alert to the driver within a short period. The GSM is chosen due to its ability to lower the energy consumption per bit while providing higher data rates. Two sensors are used; Force Sensitive Resistor (FSR) Sensor and Pressure Infrared (PIR) Sensor. The alert system is triggered when both sensors detect the presence of a child at the back of the car seat which will then notify the parents or a driver immediately through a message sent via a mobile phone.
