Safety

Child in back seat reminder

Accidentally leaving a child in the back seat, especially on hot days, has become a national epidemic. Even the most well meaning parent occasionally becomes preoccupied, which can lead to tragedy. This modification would create a Child Safety mode which, when turned on via software, will create audio and visual (on touchscreen) reminders that a child is in the back seat. It would be triggered whenever the car is put into Park, which the driver would then need to acknowledge. Alternatively you could receive a text message. If not acknowledged, a comfortable climate would prevent the car from getting too hot. When the battery dips under 10% the climate turns off and windows all open a couple inches and a message is sent, optionally to 911 as well.
