carseatIn a recent article on the Huffington Post, Ingrid Prueher writes of new technology by Evenflo Corporation that will protect babies from being left in a hot car. “The Evenflo Advanced Embrace DLX infant car seat with SensorSafe technology comes equipped with a receiver that plugs into the data port in the car’s onboard diagnostic port. It links to the sensor on a clip that goes across the baby’s chest in the seat using Wi-fi.
