What is Ride Nanny?
No one ever starts the day intending to forget their baby in a car. You are a good parent.
So were nearly 46 parents in 2018 already. Over 40 parents who simply got busy with something else and did not remember that their baby was asleep in the backseat.
Ride Nanny was created out of an urgent need to apply better, easy to use technology to remind caregivers of their most precious cargo.
We start by using new technology in a unique way. Beacons were introduced into the world in 2013. Beacons use Apple’s technology standards to allow mobile apps to listen for signals from the beacon.
The underlying technology used is Bluetooth Low Energy. Until now, these beacons have been used almost exclusively for advertising to customer as they get near a beacon or share information about a specific thing you are standing close to.
We have taken these beacons and adapted them to be placed in your and your caregiver’s car, one per vehicle. They have been pre-loaded to find the Ride Nanny downloaded app (the app is always FREE!). Once this connection is established, every time you enter your vehicle (app and beacon pair at a specific range), the app will ask if you are traveling with a child.
If yes, you click the start button. If no, it stays off. Once you arrive at your destination, if you are traveling with your baby, your phone will send you an alert to remind you of the baby.
