GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Changzhi Li, a doctoral student in electrical and computer engineering at the University of Florida, adjusts a prototype baby monitor in an engineering laboratory on Nov. 24, 2008. The crib-mounted part of the monitor (left) keeps tabs on the baby’s chest movements, sending an alarm to a portable unit (right) if the baby stops breathing. A team of University of Florida engineering students designed the monitor based on Doppler radar technology pioneered by Jenshan Lin, a UF professor of electrical and computer engineering.
