When we have a baby, it's quite normal to buy different devices to check when the baby cries or has a fever, or if the baby is still breathing during sleep. So, in this chapter, we'll try to implement several smart sensors to detect these states of danger using our BeagleBone Black and some special sensors.
Warning! Let me remind that this project is a prototype and it cannot be used as a personal safety application! It's simply a study of a possible implementation of a baby room sentinel device.
