About

In the past 30 years only two technologies have been used to create back up sensors: electromagnetic and ultrasonic. Both technologies must be installed in the rear bumper, work only when the gear shift is in reverse and they are very expensive.

Two years ago I read an article about a father who killed his own child by backing up with his SUV. I felt horrible because I am a father myself and I could only imagine what that family must have gone through. I started to investigate about "Parking Sensor Systems" and I learned that in US alone, every year there are 3000 children that are hit by cars backing up and 150 of them are killed (www.kidsandcars.org).

I wanted to create a new technology that could be affordable for everyone, easy to install and most of all portable, so I created the IPPS. The IPPS is based on a new technology that allows the back up sensor to be installed as easy as an EZ-Pass® (or Telepass for Europe), that works with the gear shift in neutral and that is affordable for everyone ($ 69). The IPPS is the first and only portable back up sensor in the world that reads the movement of the back tire. It can be installed by anyone in seconds and it works with a majority of all cars worldwide.

Risks and challenges

The risk is that people will pay less attention when they drive only because they feel more protected. The IPPS is not a substitute for established safe driving practices. Always use your best judgment when you drive and do not take any chances. Know where your kids are before moving your vehicle. Teach children that a parked vehicle might move and most of all to never play in, around or behind any vehicle. The challenge is that unfortunately you can only hear the beep as the obstacle gets closer, however we are working on a new version of the IPPS which will have an integrated rear view camera that will use your smartphone as a monitor, so you will be able to see the obstacle as well as hear the alert as you get closer.
