Analysis of Sensor Technologies for Pediatric Vehicular Heatstroke Prevention Based on Real-world Data

Principal Investigator: Jalaj Maheshwari, MS, Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia

This project focuses on pediatric vehicular heatstroke and aims: 1) to review real-world vehicular heatstroke cases caused by different circumstances and to determine prevention and alerting technologies, and 2) to document, relevant to heatstroke prevention, different educational efforts undertaken to inform parents and caregivers, and strategies used by vehicle and child seat assessment programs.

This project is currently underway. Further information will be added in late 2021 following project completion.
