Los Angeles-based smart home startup Miku unveiled at CES 2019 its Miku Baby Monitor, a smart baby monitor that uses artificial intelligence (A.I.) and machine-learning technology to detect and analyze baby’s breathing, sound and motion in its very own quad-core brain.
The Miku Baby Monitor captures and analyzes vital metrics and sleep patterns using proprietary technology developed by military engineers and backed by the National Science Foundation. The device was built to provide new parents with a greater sense of awareness and empowerment related to their baby’s health.
The Miku Baby Monitor uses patent-pending AI and machine learning technology called SensorFusion, which combines optical and wireless sensing to build a full and accurate picture of the baby’s critical health metrics with no wires or wearables.
Beyond breathing and sleeping patterns, these sensors track temperature and humidity levels to ensure the baby’s environment is stable.
Miku’s technology and corresponding app work with smartphones from anywhere in the world and sends instant alerts when it matters most, giving parents a tranquil peace of mind.
“We’ve invented a technology that cares as much about your baby as you do,” Colt Seman, CMO and co-founder of Miku, said in a statement.
“We’re honoured to be a winner in the Best of BabyTech Awards and hope to set a new standard for the industry that raises expectations for something as core to care as a baby monitor.”
Miku propels the baby monitor into completely new territory with its brilliant orchestration of technology in one tiny, powerful package. A local Qualcomm processor works in real-time to detect and analyze the baby’s breathing, sound, and motion in its very own quad-core brain, enabling the device to function even if the WiFi connection is lost.
Another unique feature to Miku is an embedded, tamper-resistant Crypto Chip keeping Miku’s data secure.
In addition to capturing core metrics within its iOS and Android compatible app, Miku tracks and graphs the baby’s sleeping habits, offering a visual analysis through a digital dashboard called MikuMind. Here, parents can view sleep reports, read expert health tips and scroll through an archive of photos, videos, and much more. MikuMind analyzes and stores data to build a bigger picture of the baby’s behaviour over time.
The more data it collects, the smarter Miku–and parents–become. In the future, the company will use this data to make health recommendations like check-up reminders or provide alerts when vitals change, such as your baby’s heart rate or room’s temperature and humidity.
