Arduino pairs with the mobile app over the cloud to track the movement, pushing it in real-time to the application on the mobile.
The Hackthon Goal
Pairing the Arduino Yun with a mobile device allowing the the Accelerometer to send data in real time to the mobile App.
I'd appreciate it if you read further to give your feedback about the whole idea
The big picture
A belt worn around the baby's diaper will monitor the baby's sleeping position and sleeping quality. An alert will be sent to the mobile phone application if the baby's sleeping position needs attention or changing. A breathing monitor is another important feature that will be added as future work, since I did not have enough time to implement it yet.
As a new father, the increased rate of SIDS (Sudden infant death syndrome) among infants got me scared enough to be inspired to build this project; A diaper belt to track the baby's quality of sleep and breathing.
Arduino Yun tracks is one of the simple hardware to use where the baby movement information gets pushed to a cloud platform that instantly updates the mobile app. The hardware was built during the hackathon:
For the Breathing monitor, Arduino will track the stretch sensor in order to notify the parent or caregiver of any unusual breathing . unfortunately I was not able to get a stretch sensor or have enough time to build it.
Hopefully in the near future I will be working on providing and finishing an affordable breathing sensor to give a peace of mind for parents and caregivers who cant afford expensive monitoring devices.

That's the plan, am looking for a hardware partner already, get it into an incubator and launch it at kickstarter. And then world domination ^^

The Main objective for this hackathon was to pair the Arduino Yun with a mobile device allowing the the Accelerometer to send data in real time to the mobile App.
I did include the bigger picture of this hackthon to get feedback this awesome hackathon community.
In the future, yes it will be a belt worn on the baby's diaper and will alarm the parents when the movement is out of ordinary ( could save a life from SIDS ) , and the ability to see how your baby is doing vs other babies.
Thanks Cristian for your feedback.
I noticed my description is confusing ( hackthon entry vs visionary project ), I'll fix it.
For breathing, I'll be using a stretch sensor. and totally agree with the trainable algorithm since each baby is different.
Thanks! Will keep you posted for future prototypes. would always love to hear your feedback!
I have uploaded the video. I hope it helps you to judge it.
I'd appreciate a feedback.
