Tittle:
Technology that identifies baby´s reason for crying.
Summary:
An Spanish IT SME has developed a technology able to interpret and communicate the reason for the baby crying, regardless of culture and sex. It is looking for financial agreement, commercial agreement with technical assistance or license agreement.
Description:
Spanish SME in the field of sensor devices offers its technology which consists of an effective translator for baby crying, helping parents/baby care-givers to pay early and effective attention which can soothe a baby crying.

On average, a baby cries about three hours daily, causing frustration and worry to parents and caregivers. By using the technology offered it is now possible to identify the reasons why the baby is crying and recommend guidelines for responding in a more rapid and effective manner. In addition, research suggests that a baby who feels well attended will develop more self-confidence and feel better towards his/her care-givers, implying better emotional development. Studies have found a significant relationship between this improved emotional development and a lifelong increase in cognitive capacity.

Regarding the state of the art, there are no other companies to recognize the reason for crying in less than 1 minute; their devices also have to be located at an specific distance from the baby; and their results doesnt have as accurate results for different human cultures and sex differences.

Form more details, the technology helps to interpret infant crying and to respond adequately and rapidly to his/her needs.
The operation of the technology is based on the analysis of the crying sounds. For correct operation background noise should be kept at a minimum. This is the general procedure for using the product:
- Make sure you do not block the microphone and place it at less than 1 foot from the baby.
- To start translation, place the device near the baby when he/she cries and touch the appropriate button
- In less than three seconds (ten seconds in iPhone) an output will be given with the translation of the baby´s crying, relating to one of a number of states: hunger, sleep, discomfort, stress o simply bored.
- If the baby is bored, discomfortable or sleepy, it is possible to play lullabies or the heart beating sound with the appropriate buttons.

Regarding the cooperation requested:
- Financial agreement, through investors, for further develop a marketing and exploitation strategy.
- Or licence agreement, in order to another partner exploit the technology within their own brand.
- Or commercial agreement with technical assistance, for the same as the latest one, and for further helping improving / adapting the product.



Advantages and Innovations:
The system is already praised by different pediatricians and professionals in the sector.

Innovations:
- In 3 seconds it will give feedback on the reason for crying: hungry, sleepy, annoyed, stressed or bored.
