Walmart reveals new product designed to prevent infant hot car deaths

Walmart has announced details of a new infant car seat designed to stop children from dying in hot cars.

The retailer enlisted Evenflo to bring to market this first-of-its-kind car seat with technology aimed at the prevention of vehicular heat stroke.

The Evenflo Advanced SensorSafe™ Embrace infant car seat uses a wireless receiver that plugs into a car’s On Board Diagnostic (OBD) port and syncs with the chest clip that goes around the baby. If the car is turned off and the chest clip is still buckled, a series of tones will play to alert the driver. The Evenflo SensorSafe™ car seat is the only alert system crash tested by the manufacturer and will retail exclusively at Walmart for $149.88.
