Breathing Rate Detection
Cocoon Cam is able to detect breathing with only computer vision, no wearables necessary.
This means when your baby is very still (ie.restful sleep) then the only motion detected in that image will be from the chest rising and falling with each breath.
The system zones in on each movement in the baby’s chest and abdominal areas and calculates your baby’s breathing rate by counting how often this rise-fall motion happens. In the app, we display the last calculated breathing rate, along with the last time this rate was computed. Cocoon Cam monitors effectively no matter the baby's position, or if they're swaddled.
Important: The baby needs to be restful for a complete 15 seconds before the system is able to capture the respiration rate. You will receive the sleep notification and then the breathing rate will be detected.
**Please make sure you leave your baby in the crib/bassinet for a complete sleep period to test this feature accurately.
The system will send breathing alerts when breathing changes. You will be able to customize the notifications in your settings. Read more about the notifications here.
