ABOUT CORAL MANTA

CORAL MANTA 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 MANTA 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 MANTA "watches" the pool 24/7 when there are people in the pool and when the pool is not in use. Moreover, while existing alarms require you to deactivate and reactivate when using or exiting the pool, with CORAL MANTA you do not need to worry about forgetting to activate or deactivate, covering or uncovering, locking or unlocking anything. CORAL MANTA is on the lookout nonstop, day and night.

HOW DOES IT DO THAT?

CORAL MANTA (US patent pending # 62/287,165) constantly monitors the pool with its built-in underwater video camera, using computer vision and artificial intelligence technology . CORAL MANTA is programmed to detect people in the pool as well as 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 of sinking and the immediate urge to breathe 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 MANTA identifies such a situation and sets off an alarm.

BUT ISN’T IT TOO LATE?

For children, irreversible damage to the brain tissues typically starts to occur after about 4-5 minutes without oxygen, (for adults it is after about 3-4 minutes).
CORAL MANTA detects when a person sinks, meaning seconds after she or he stopped breathing, and it sets off a series of escalating alarms within seconds. This gives you ample time to get the person out of the water, and start CPR or any other essential action.

People who drown and are removed from the water within such a time frame have very high chances of surviving without any damage.

CAN I LEAVE MY POOL UNATTENDED?

CORAL MANTA 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 MANTA detects 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 at stake.
Adult supervision is always required.

HOW WAS IT TESTED?

During the development process CORAL MANTA was tested in thousands of scenarios simulating drowning events, in a wide variety of swimming pools, with adults and children.
But there is more. CORAL MANTA is using Artificial Intelligence technology that constantly continues to "learn" and improve, and even to adjust to your own pool.

UNLIKE NO OTHER SYSTEM:

- Unlike pool alarms, there is no need to turn on or off when using or cleaning the pool. CORAL MANTA is not sensitive to motion but instead constantly analyzes video imaging of the people in the pool.
- Unlike pool cover or fence, there is no worry about opening or closing them since CORAL MANTA is active 24/7, when the pool in in use, and when the pool is empty.
- Unlike wrist bands, you do not need to have one for each child, or be concerned whether the child wears it all the time or took it off, simply because CORAL MANTA uses camera to track the kids in the pool all the time.

CONTINUOUS IMPROVEMENT

CORAL MANTA comes out of the box with a lot of "knowledge" that enables it to detect most drowning events, while generating minimum false alarms.
But, your pool may have different and unique features that CORAL MANTA never "saw" before.
Thus, in the first couple of weeks, it may generate more false alarms than usual.
When there is a false alarm, using your App, you can tell CORAL MANTA to ignore it, and this is how it learns and the rate of false alarms will drop dramatically to close to zero.
