iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD_02 2017

While the baby is asleep, the robot observes it at all times and records a full range of measurements to document the baby's sleep patterns and body functions. If everything is usual, nothing happens, but if the baby develops a fever or anything else out of the ordinary, the robot will send an alarm signal to the mobile phone connected. The baby's heart rate can be monitored 24/7. If the baby's body temperature drops at night, the alarm will also sound automatically. The baby's temperature is recorded to provide a data parameter to facilitate the doctor's diagnosis. This may be a big help in preventing SIDs (Sudden Infant Death).

As this is only a study, we can only assume that it will work. Yes, anything that helps to make babies safer is worth being supported. The robot also looks cute, which makes it child-friendly.
