It is still an extra that is being developed, but Tesla wants to create a unique feature for its cars soon. He wants to apply a sensor to cars that can detect children and thus prevent them from being forgotten.
The brand asked the FCC for authorization to develop this system and subsequently incorporate it into its vehicles. This will be short-range, but will detect movement through materials, so it is better than the cameras currently used.
When using this high energy system, Tesla needs authorization. It will be a system that uses radar technology with millimeter waves and that later catalogs and identifies all the occupants of any car.
This system can also be used in other situations. It can help to detect the occupants of a car and adjust the airbags in the event of an accident. Also in the case of belts, an occupant or an object can be detected. Finally, you can help anti-theft systems.
According to Tesla, problems with children forgotten in cars are high in the USA. In 2018 and 2019 more than 50 died in these situations, something that the brand can help prevent and combat, at least in their vehicles.
Tesla has been trying to improve the safety of occupants in its cars, even the 4-legged ones. Dog Mode was an improvement that the brand brought and that refreshes the interior so that dogs do not have problems.
