On average, 37 children lose their lives every year from heatstroke after being left in hot cars in the United States. 661 children have died from heatstroke in an 18 year period. Of those 661, 54% were “forgotten” by their caregiver. Even with the windows cracked, the temperature inside of a car can reach 125 degrees in a matter of minutes. Death occurs when core body temperature reaches 113 degrees. Pets left in backseats are also at risk for heatstroke. These statistics bring to light a very serious issue that needs to be addressed and solved, which is precisely what the new Brilliant Backseat Reminder System is designed to do.
Rear View Safety, the industry leader in the sales and distribution of backup camera systems, as well as a strong and dedicated road safety advocate has announced the release of the RVS-BLB Brilliant Backseat Reminder System. The product is designed from the ground up to remind drivers to take children, pets, or valuables out of the backseat of the car.
The beauty of the Brilliant Backseat Reminder System is its simplicity. When the backdoor is opened before the vehicle is started, the system recognizes that something, or someone, was put in the rear of the car. When the driver arrives at the destination and leaves the vehicle, the RVS-BLB actives a moderate audio alarm to remind them about the cargo. If this alarm is not turned off in 40 seconds, the system activates the vehicle’s horn to draw attention. The Brsystem saves lives, giving the driver peace of mind in a busy and ever changing world, the company said in a statement in New York.
Rear View Safety is not a stranger to the world of safety enhancing products for drivers and vehicles of all types. Recently they introduced GoVue, the first back up camera smartphone app for the popular iOS and Android operating systems. Once the smartphone and camera system are connected via a short-range Wi-Fi network, video information from the rear of the vehicle is transmitted to the smartphone in real time. This eliminates the need for a primary monitor to be installed into the dashboard of the vehicle. The GoVue back up camera application for iOS and Android devices is currently available for free download in the Google Play Store and the iTunes App Store. – PRNewswire
