First Smart Speaker System

  • Researchers at the University of Washington have developed a new smart speaker skill (BreathJunior) that allows a device to use white noise to soothe sleeping babies and monitor their breathing and movements.
  • BreathJunior tracks both small motions like the chest movement involved in breathing and large motions when babies move around their cribs.
  • It also picks up the sound of a baby crying.
  • When it was tested by the researchers with five babies in a local hospital’s neonatal intensive care unit, it detected respiratory rates closely matching standard vital sign monitors.
