Hi,

I have a project for baby care system and I need your help. I need a piece of code for detecting the motion of baby and send an alert to parents.

I'll be grateful if you help me.

So basicalyy, all you need is the system written for you. Hence my vote of 1.

Do I get your salary for doing your job for you? If so, I might be tempted to help out.

It wont be just "a piece of code" you know. You're talking about a much more complex task there. You'd have to inform yourself about "Motion detection" in general at first.

of course i have informed my self about it !! i know that the code is not that complex ..

bool GetbBabyHasMoved()
{
return false;
}
Ah! and remember to glue the baby to the bed...

Now seriously:

it all depends on the kind of exercise they've given you... Which is the minimum movement you need to detect?

Using a web cam and comparing images could help...
Putting a sensor to the baby could help...
Using a cell phone with some api to find it's place could help...

I think your high-level analysis is correct, and OriginalGriff has kindly given you the framework for a solution.

Basically, you need to fit together two functional pieces:

1. How to detect movement - this is somewhat dependent on the particular hardware, but you will find many hits with google that will guide you.

2. How to send a message - with this one, you will find many articles on CodeProject; email, SMS, etc. This should be much simpler than (1).

When you have made a start, please post here if you have specific questions.

nice one , my 5 !!!

## Solution 1

Try:
do
{
if (BabyMoved())
{
}
} while (1==1)
The rest is specific to your hardware and software environment.
