The app displays health information from the monitor and controls the lamp remotely.
The monitor is strapped around the baby’s chest. It tracks heart rate, breathing rate, temperature and sleep pattern.
I was lucky to be find an expert in Christina Boothman, SIDS Program Manager for Contra Costa County. She serves on the County's Child Death Review Team and carries out short-term interventions with the Community Action Team.
" A lot of the products we have on the market today may lure parents into a false sense of security. There hasn't been any peer-reviewed science suggesting that they work, although there's significant evidence that they increase parental anxiety"

For my user interviews, I came up with three learning goals that would help me get a better vision of solving the problem. For each learning goal I asked three questions.
"[I want to know] how much my baby slept during the day"
"I would love to be able to get help with getting my child to follow a certain routine when it comes to going to sleep at night"
I listed multiple telemetrics that could be monitored on a child and asked my users to prioritize the features in order of importance. After testing, I noted and graphed the results.
Charging Base for Monitor
I started brainstorming product goals for my app, and then picked the one I thought was strongest: “to ensure the baby’s safety.”
The goal with the A/B Testing was to see if an element looked clickable. The user can click on the health graphs and see the status (for example) between 3pm and 4pm. I had 12 users go through the flow.
The original one I designed. During user testing, it was obvious that users did not understand that the graph element was clickable.
Added a shadow to the element and a stroke on the inside to make it look more like a button. I also added small, circular indicators to see if they would increase the click rate on the graph.
Version A: 3 users out of 12 clicked on the graph element
Version B: 9 users out of 12 clicked on the graph element
The onboarding feature provides the user information about Juno’s goal and how the app connects to the Juno monitor and lamp.
The user can keep track of heart rate, breathing rate and skin temperature. The health feature also provides an informational screen with customized research articles.
With the sleep tracker, the user can see how much their child is sleeping during the day and at night. Juno calculates the overall sleep and informs the user about the baby’s sleep routine and how to improve sleeping patterns.
The Juno lamp has a light projector which is controllable through the app. The user can also play different sounds for the baby using the white noise feature.
