"The CO Automobile Detector": Keeps Vehicle Operators Safe From Potential Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

The Merriam-Webster online dictionary describes carbon monoxide as a colorless, odorless, poisonous gas that is formed when carbon is not completely burned and especially when gasoline is burned in car engines The ability to detect this horrific and dangerous gas isu now possible. The CO Automobile Detector is a carbon-monoxide detector for motor vehicles – cars, vans, pickups, SUVs, tractor-trailers, and buses – that would operate automatically, whenever the vehicle's engine is running. The detector is designed to respond to the presence of carbon-monoxide (CO) by shutting the engine down, opening all the vehicle's windows, and activating a visible and audible alarm, the intent of the CO Automobile Detector is to save lives by alerting motorists to the presence of this “silent killer” – which is tasteless, odorless, and lethal.

It is incorporated into the vehicle's wiring harness and electrical system with the Detector itself in a vehicle's interior. When carbon-monoxide levels reach a specific threshold, the Detector responds in three simultaneous ways: 1) trips a switch shutting down the CO-emitting engine, stopping that gas at its source; 2) immediately lowers all electrically operated windows in the vehicle; and 3) emits an audio-visual warning – a flashing red or yellow dashboard light along with a piercing alarm tone or a verbal warning: “Carbon-Monoxide Detected! Exit the Vehicle Now”. The CO Automobile Detector functions automatically – powering off the battery when the car or other vehicle is stationary, and powering off the electrical system when vehicle is in motion. Once the Detector/Alarm sequence has occurred, the CO Automobile Detector resets to battery-powered mode, and indicates – by the cessation of its audio-visual alarms – when it was safe to get back into the vehicle. The CO Automobile Detector can be configured to first issue its alarms and roll down the windows providing perhaps 20 to 30 seconds of further engine operation before shutdown allowing freeway drivers a chance to reach the shoulder of the road before the engine is shut down. Televised test marketing has recently been completed indicating strong consumer interest in the CO Automobile Detector. 
The CO Automobile Detector is Patent Pending and was invented by Luis Garcia of New York, NY who said, “Since Carbon Monoxide is tasteless, invisible, and odorless, it is impossible to estimate the number of fatal crashes that have occurred when a driver supposed fell asleep. That will not happen when the CO Automobile Detector is in place because it works.”
