Saarang Sumesh, a child genius who resides from Kochi is the youngest robot maker in India. The young lad also worked on a smart seat belt project, in January last year.
You wouldn’t believe he created his first robot at the mere age of 4 and his inventions were inspired by daily problems. Taking inspiration from the youngest robot maker, his school has also developed a special innovation lab.
The Smart seat belt project:
· The belt can sense if a vehicle is upside down. In such a case, the belt automatically unbuckles itself.
· It has specially designed accelerometers that perceive the crash and in those circumstances, the belt does not open immediately
· The water and fire sensors in the device can become aware of water and fire, and if these are detected, the seat belts open automatically
· In the case of fire without accident, fire alarm in the device will display it to the driver and he will be able to park his vehicle and escape safely
How the idea generated:
The device was generated after he overheard a conversation between his parents recounting problems of normal seat belts in a school bus that do not easily release after an accident and therefore bear out to be a big danger for children. Saarang wished to make this for kids in school buses and that is how he came up with the smart seat belt idea
