Vayyar Imaging, the global leader in 3D imaging technology, announced from the Paris Motor Show it will provide Valeo , a leading automotive supplier, with its advanced automotive sensors to enhance infant passenger safety in vehicles. Vayyar’s highly-sophisticated radar sensors enable Valeo to monitor infants’ breathing and trigger an alert in the case of emergency, including if an infant has been left inside a vehicle alone. Through this partnership, the companies will work together toward mass production readiness to radically change the standard of safety in the automotive industry.

Unique in their field, Vayyar’s sensors consolidate multiple antennas and multi-transceiver radar capabilities to identify the respiration patterns of an infant and alert upon the detection of any anomalies. Unlike other technologies, these sensors work in any light condition and beyond the line of sight to constantly monitor and provide real-time updates on an infant’s health status.

Raviv Melamed, CEO, co-founder and chairman of Vayyar, said: “We are excited to partner with Valeo, a leader in the automotive industry, to bring smarter, safer vehicles to market. By integrating our new 3D-sensing abilities with Valeo’s automotive products, we will help save lives and prevent accidents. We look forward to continuing our work with Valeo to make intuitive, connected cars a reality and offer increased peace-of-mind for all passengers and drivers.”
