This proposed mobile application alerts parents to stop them from accidentally leaving kids in cars. Currently seeking funds via crowdfunding platform Kickstarter, the Forget Me Not Kid Alarm app is from Beverly Marketing Management. The fundraising campaign will address production and manufacturing costs.

The quick to install system is compatible with most carseats and vehicle models. In addition to the smartphone app, the system also consists of a sensor pad. The two communicate using Bluetooth technology and radio frequency. If the sensor notices a parent is leaving the car while children are still in their seats, a visual and audible alarm will go off.

Leaving kids in cars has become an enormous issue lately, with parents receiving hefty punishments including jail time.
