Abstract [en]

A soother (also known as pacifier, dummy, or binky) is a device used by small children for nonnutritive sucking needs as well as to fall asleep at night. However, children often drop their soother without being able to retrieve it in the dark causing them to cry and alert their parents. This often means that parents are forced to go out of their way in order to assist the crying child. This can occur several times a night and is inconvenient for parents especially when trying to sleep.

This project explores different solutions to this problem and focuses on the development of a prototype of the best solution found. The solution is meant to allow children to assist themselves in retrieving their soother. The development is based on the integration of built-in electronics into the soother that are used to detect when the child is crying. Upon detection of the crying sound the device responds by lighting up for a given period of time allowing the child to see and retrieve the soother. This innovation is primarily intended to benefit parents with small children, improving the quality of their leisure time and sleep.
