Where is the best place to put your baby to sleep? The automaker Ford seems to have found the answer and has just released a prototype of a connected and interactive cradle. This new technology aims to change the lives of parents for whom Baby has trouble falling asleep.
The cradle simulates all aspects of the journey of a car as Baby experiences them before sinking into Morpheus’s arms. Parents will no longer have to walk around their residential area 3 times to fall asleep.
The cradle simulates the sound of the engine, the movements of the vehicle, the surrounding lights, and a mobile application allows the parameters of a trip to which Baby is accustomed to be saved and then returned to the home.
They will then record the route on a dedicated application. The application will memorize the turns, the jolts thanks to the accelerometer of the phone. In addition, it will take care of recording the noises inside the vehicle, in particular the purring of the engine and the surrounding light.
The next step is to connect the cradle to the smartphone and the bed will reproduce the journey thanks to the balencier, the speaker and the LEDs.
All you have to do is let Baby savor his night.
Renault & Chicco
Another automaker has also developed a connected cradle. This idea was born from the partnership between Renault and the baby brand Chicco. The idea is much the same as for the Ford cradle except that here it is a base to be placed under the nacelle. The purpose of this database is to reproduce the movements by car. The movement of the cradle reproduces different types of driving (urban, sport, road, etc.). All this to be regulated via a dedicated smartphone application.
The advantage of this base is that it is adaptable with all the seats of the Italian brand. and is transportable everywhere.
Snoo what is it? This is a connected cradle just as smart as the previous two. Indeed, Snoo is able to notice when Baby is awake and he will then rock him even before Mum and Dad arrive.
The cradle is equipped with sound sensors such as microphones and motion sensors. These sensors will be able to identify the baby’s crying and little noises when he wakes up. The cradle will then swing from left to right. In addition, it plays at the same time a sound that recalls what the infant hears in his mother’s womb.
