Abstract

Anew, inexpensive domestic electronic cradle that can compete with currentimported, expensive models has been a long-time need. This study describes thedesign and implementation of a new indigenous low-cost E-Baby Cradle thatswings automatically when the baby cries. The cry analyzing system recognizesthe sound of a baby's cry and swings the cradle appropriately until the babystops crying. According to the user's needs, the cradle's speed can be adjusted.The cradle also has an integrated alarm that signals two situations: First,when the mattress is wet, which is a crucial factor in maintaining the baby'shygienic state; second, when the infant continues to cry for a prolongedperiod, which suggests that the baby requires attention. This method enablesnurses and parents to care for infants without having to physically touch them.
