In 2019, Italy became the first country in the European Union to make it mandatory for parents to utilize technology to prevent children from being left behind in the backseat of a car. Filo, an IoT start-up in Rome, Italy, had been helping users keep tabs on their belongings since launching its original product, the Filo Tag, in 2014. With the passage of the anti-abandonment law, the company saw an opportunity to bring its Bluetooth tracking solution to bear on this very serious challenge. On the strength of the Tag’s success, the company set out on development of the Tata Pad.
To build a consumer-friendly, low-power alarm system to prevent children from being accidentally left in parked cars.
Filo created the Tata Pad and Tata Band a baby car seat alarm that uses Bluetooth to alert parents when they’re walking away from their car with a child inside.
