The CORAL System gives you the peace of mind you need when owning a private pool… It is constantly watching and analyzing your pool underwater.
How is CORAL different?
Existing pool safety devices such as fences, pool covers or mechanical alarms merely attempt to prevent unauthorized access to the pool. But they become useless when someone is already in the pool (whether authorized or not).
In contrast, CORAL watches the pool 24/7 even when people are in the pool. Moreover, while with existing alarms you have to remember to deactivate and reactivate when using or exiting the pool, with CORAL you do not need to worry about forgetting to activate or deactivate, covering or uncovering, locking or unlocking anything – It simply is working non-stop….day and night
How does it do that?
The CORAL (US patent pending # 62/287,165) constantly monitors the pool with its built-in underwater video camera, using similar computer vision and artificial intelligence technology found in self-driving cars. CORAL was programmed to identify people in the pool, their position and motion. Using this technology it constantly analyzes the real time video that it captures from the underwater camera and whenever it identifies a near drowning event it generates an alarm. Simultaneously and just in case you are not around, it is sending alerts to all household members via their smart-phones / tablets.
A bit about drowning
Imagine floating on the water and then breathing out all the air from your lungs. You probably know the feeling sinking and the immediate urge to breath in to keep afloat. Without air in your lungs, your body sinks. Accordingly in most cases, when a person drowns he or she sinks to the bottom quickly.
CORAL identifies such a situation and sets off an alarm.
But isn’t it too late?
Irreversible damage to the brain tissues start to occur with young children after about 4-5 minutes without oxygen, and about 3-4 minutes with adults.
CORAL identifies such situation and sets off the alarms within seconds – giving you ample time to get the person or child out of the water, and start CPR or take any necessary action.
People who drown and are removed from the water within such a timeframe have very high chances of surviving without any damage.
Can I leave my pool unattended?
CORAL is not a replacement for all the usual precautions you need to take in your pool, such as not leaving children unattended inside, or in the vicinity of the pool. CORAL will detect the vast majority of the drowning cases, but in the same way, you would not drive recklessly just because you have a safety belt and an airbag, you should not rely solely on any safety system when people’s life is on the stake. Adult supervision is still required.
How was it tested?
During the development process the CORAL system was tested in thousands of scenarios simulating drowning events, in a large variety of swimming pools, with adults and children, and it is still constantly being tested and further improved.
