CES is all about new tech innovations. The array of products that are displayed generally range from fitness to luxury and more. The focus is practically nil on products which are suitable for kids. But this year, at the International CES, children’s safety was kept in mind and a potentially smart life-saving car accessory was displayed by Tom Malone, the CEO of Voxx, an American consumer electronics company, in a private presentation. Baby on Board is the new product by this company.

Baby on Board
This product lets a parent put a module which senses weight, under their children’s baby seat. This will put the safety of their kids on their fingertips. Wondering how this is possible? Here is the explanation.
If a parent leaves behind their child in the car by mistake, they can be alerted automatically about the child’s presence, using Bluetooth connection to a different key fob. This will keep your child safe from any disaster.
The product was displayed by Malone in a cheerful video demonstration which showed a grandmother being reminded to get her grandchild from the car’s back seat. The audience had received the video in a light hearted way. However, this fictional setting could easily become a serious one in real life. That is when the Baby on Board could help the parents and grandparents.

Malone said in a statement “This product is great for all new parents and at such an affordable price [$59.95] is a perfect gift for grandparents, babysitters and anyone you trust your children with.”
Potential to Fight a Growing Problem
The product has the potential to fight a growing problem. It can be helpful for anxious parents who leave their children accidentally in their cars. According to Kids and Cars, a non-profit group, around 38 children die per year from complications which arise from being left alone in cars which get overheated in the sun. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, in 2013, 44 children died after they were left alone in cars. This growing problem might be solved with the Baby on Board.
Malone said “We believe this simple, affordable and easy to use solution will help bring peace of mind to parents and caregivers.”
The product is expected to release in commercial market this summer.
