Abstract: This paper presents a Vehicular Child Trap Alert System to help in preventing tragic child death caused by hyperthermia / heatstroke and suffocation using detection and control system inside a hatchback car. The number of victims of heatstroke is increasing each year due to increased temperature and suffocation in the locked car. The increase in the number of victims has raised the issues of safety of the child in the car. This safety feature addresses deadly situations of children getting locked in the car. An efficient system is presented here which can monitor the presence of a child whenever he is accidently locked inside the car and can also communicate with the driver when the condition of the heatstroke arises. Initially, it sends a message to user’s registered mobile number and if no one comes and opens the car, it alerts via a phone call to the registered users. It is expected that this module could help in reducing the vehicle heatstroke cases among children that keep on increasing lately.
