Children Day Special: Ford Develops Clever Cot that Simulates Car Journeys so Baby Can Get to Sleep at Home – without Mum or Dad Having to Hit the Road

[dropcap]F[/dropcap]or many new parents, there is only one guaranteed solution to putting their baby down at the end of the day – a night-time drive that soothes, calms, and eventually helps the little one nod off.

But that still means a disrupted night for mum or dad, who research shows can typically expect little more than five hours sleep a night while losing the equivalent of 44 days’ sleep in the first year of their child’s life.

According to other research conducted by Accident Data Nigeria, fatigue caused 2% of fatal road accidents in 2013. There is a need to combat this figure. As driving is a safety critical task, it is essential that one gets good quality sleep. Drivers should ensure that they work within the normal hours and rest for the required number of hours so that they are geared up for the next day.

In a recent statement, Ford Motor Company acknowledged Children’s Day, promising to continue to take the necessary steps to stimulate safety and security.

The auto maker recently developed a cot that can simulate – in the comfort of one’s own home – the motion, engine noise, and even the street lighting of those night-time drives.

The statement reads: “To all appearances a regular cot, the Max Motor Dreams comes to life using a smartphone app. This enables it to record and then reproduce the comforting movement, lights and sounds of a particular journey.

“Parents of new-borns are often desperate for one good night’s sleep.  While a quick drive in the family car can work wonders in getting baby off to sleep, the poor old parents still have to be awake and alert at the wheel. The Max Motor Dreams can make everyday lives a little bit better for a lot of people with babies.”

For now, the Max Motor Dreams is a one-off pilot. But following numerous inquiries, the company is considering putting the unique cot into full-scale production.
