I love InCabin because it provides innovative solutions to address the critical issue of child safety in vehicles. The cutting-edge Child Presence Detection (CPD) technology, particularly utilizing thermal imaging cameras, is revolutionary in safeguarding children from the dangers of being left unattended in hot cars. Presenting at the conference gives me the opportunity to showcase the effectiveness of InCabin’s solutions and contribute to the ongoing dialogue about enhancing child safety in vehicles. I am excited to be part of this important conversation and to play a role in promoting awareness and adoption of CPD systems.
