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 ..

## Solution 3

```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...
...

Be more specific with your question please...

## Solution 1

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

Great one. I'll have to try this out! 5ved

## Solution 2

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.
