About

In response to over 500 toddler deaths from hot cars, I have designed a system to alert parents when they accidently leave their child in the car.I am seeking to raise funds to continue the Forget Me Not Kid alarm system project.Currently the project has been self funded to build the website, submit the patents, create the electronic design and launch the smart phone app.The prototype has been successfully deployed and the production design is currently in development. A press release and media campaign kicked off on September 9, 2014 as well as the website launch to take orders for the production unit.

I am seeking Kickstarter funding to help with manufacturing and production cost of 1000 units to sale.The manufacturer and test facility, Silicon Turnkey Solutions (STS), is poised and ready to start production of the units when the order is placed.With the support of kickstarter funding, I plan to have 1000 units ready to ship before the end of the month.

The request to have the same alert system for pets has been taken into consideration and the next version to launch will be for pets. 

Risks and challenges

The risk to the project is that the production units may not be completed in time to fulfill orders. The production unit requires a design layout on the electronic board (PCB), procurement of the bill of materials (BOM) and manufacturing. I currently am the VP at STS where board design, components and manufacturing is our principle business. Our ability to accommodate an accelerated schedule is very high. Capacity is not a problem as we can support 500+ boards per day. Funding is needed for the cost of the BOM and board layout.
