A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11922787B1) discloses a system designed to monitor the health of passengers in vehicles, particularly focusing on children in rear-facing seats. The system includes a processor, sensor, image sensor, and communication module. The processor is responsible for measuring physiological characteristics of passengers, capturing images, analyzing data to detect health emergencies, and generating alerts based on the severity of the situation. The system can display alerts in real-time within the vehicle, providing details of the emergency and taking appropriate actions, such as contacting emergency services or medical facilities.

The system's functionality extends to continuous monitoring and real-time detection of various health emergencies, including but not limited to choking, breathing issues, fever, stroke, heart attack, and neurological disorders. Physiological characteristics like heart rate, respiration rate, body temperature, and more are monitored and compared to baseline data to determine abnormalities. The system utilizes advanced features like image processing algorithms, artificial intelligence, and historical health data to enhance emergency detection. Additionally, the system can automatically identify medical facilities, contact emergency services, and display alerts on nearby vehicles to ensure swift responses in critical situations. The patent also covers methods and computer-readable mediums storing instructions for implementing the system's operations, emphasizing the integration of technology to improve passenger safety and health monitoring in vehicles.
