Cam scans car to make sure no child is forgotten

PENSACOLA, FL (WFLX) - A group of Florida parents are sick and tired of hearing the stories of children left in hot cars, and they've decided to do something about it. "As you listen at the various news reports, you're hearing people say there's no solution, no solution. But I'm saying, if we can send a man to the moon, surely there has to be a solution to our kids dying in a car."

The Pensacola parents teamed up with inventor Eddie Fray and have come up with a device, they say, will end this tragedy. It's called the Guardian Cam. Each time the ignition is turned on or off, or the key is removed, an interior panoramic camera takes back seat pictures.

A data bank, embedded within the car's security system, is scanned for a similar image. If a child is inside, the alarm goes off.

Within 15 seconds of the driver leaving the car, the windows go down and the alarm sounds. It doesn't stop until the child is out of their car seat.

Fray has a copyright pending.
