Carbon Monoxide Detector Invented for Motor Vehicles (ROH-359)

Share Article

Pittsburgh-based InventHelp, a leading inventor service company, is submitting this client’s idea, Life Saver, in the hopes of a good faith review.

While carbon monoxide alarms are available for homes and other structures, until now there has not been a model on the market designed for use inside motor vehicles. Thanks to the creative thinking of two inventors from Marcellus, N.Y., however, motorists can now have that same protection.

They developed LIFE SAVER to detect and warn motorists of the presence of carbon monoxide inside a vehicle. As such, it saves lives otherwise lost in motor vehicles due to accidental exposure to carbon monoxide. Similarly, it has the potential to prevent suicide in a closed motor vehicle. Not only does it afford peace of mind for safety conscious motorists, it also operates automatically with no effort on the part of the user. Furthermore, it is convenient, effective and affordably priced. In addition, in can be integrated into new vehicle design and offered as an enhancement for existing vehicles.

The inventors’ personal concerns inspired the idea. “After reading too many articles about suicides and accidental deaths because of exposure to carbon monoxide inside motor vehicles that were running, we decided that something must be developed to prevent such tragedies,” one of them said.

The original design was submitted to the Rochester office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
