The Smart Cradle using Internet of Things (IoT) is a novel and innovative approach to modernize traditional cradle systems by incorporating smart and connected technologies. This IoT-based cradle system offers enhanced safety, comfort, and convenience for both babies and caregivers. The Smart Cradle is equipped with various sensors such as temperature, humidity, motion, and sound sensors that continuously monitor the baby's environment. These sensors collect data in real-time and send it to a cloud-based server for processing and analysis. The caregivers can access this data through a mobile application or a web interface, allowing them to remotely monitor the baby's condition and receive alerts in case of any abnormalities. Furthermore, the Smart Cradle incorporates features like automated rocking, adjustable incline, and soothing lullabies, which can be controlled remotely through the mobile application. The caregivers can customize the cradle's settings based on the baby's preferences and needs, providing a personalized sleeping experience for the baby. Additionally, the Smart Cradle offers seamless integration with other smart home devices, such as smart cameras, smart lights, and smart thermostats, enabling caregivers to create a safe and conducive environment for the baby. The system can also generate insights and recommendations based on the collected data, helping caregivers to make informed decisions about the baby's sleep patterns, health, and well- being.
