Resumen

The Sudden Infant Death Syndrome causes unexpected death of infants. Some of the risk factors are related to the prone or side sleeping, ambient temperature and bedclothes overhead, among others. We state that some of these risk factors can be sensed using an augmented object in the bedclothes of the infants, and that the collected information can be sent to an adult through a mobile application. In this paper we present a prototype with sensor-base interfaces that can prevent the Sudden Infant Death Syndrome.
