Nanit, creator of the most advanced baby monitor, has unveiled new AI-powered tool for parents - Smart Sheets - the first textile that allows parents to measure their baby's height and track their growth using Nanit camera's computer vision technology. The company will launch features such as a growth chart and time-lapse video compilation later this year.

Measuring a wiggly baby with a ruler or tape can be difficult, and often inaccurate. With Smart Sheets and Nanit's award-winning HD nursery cameras, parents can now easily track and monitor their baby's height and growth progress. Parents simply lay their baby or toddler down on a Smart Sheet in the crib and let Nanit do the work. Parents use the in-app tools to mark the key measurement points on the baby, then Nanit's advanced computer vision processes the baby's height based on its calibration against the proprietary pattern printed on the Smart Sheet.

"Nanit was designed to help parents learn about their baby and support their journey during the first few years of a child's development," said Nanit CEO Sarah Dorsett. "We are excited to expand our offering with the introduction of Smart Sheets and to provide an incredible, safe new way for parents to easily stay connected to their child's health and well-being."

Parents can see a real-time reading of their baby's height in the Nanit app, and can then store those measurements and track growth progress over time. Further features including a growth chart and time-lapse video compilation will be rolled out later this year.

"Tracking a baby's height is an important and helpful way to understand their development in between doctor's visits. This can help provide parents and caregivers with a complete picture of their overall well-being when combined with Nanit's ability to monitor sleep and breathing motion," added Dr. Natalie Barnett, director of Clinical Research at Nanit.

Smart Sheets are safe and effective with no sensors or electronics on the baby's skin or in their crib. Nanit's Smart Sheets are made of 100 per cent cotton, machine washable and fit a standard full-size crib mattress. Available at launch in pebble grey, additional colours options will be released later this year.
