DALLAS -- The X-Change Corporation’s (OTCBB: XCHC) wholly owned subsidiary AirGATE Technologies has initiated development of an RFID prototype application for use with automotive child safety seats.

According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, more children are killed as passengers in car crashes than from any other type of injury. The U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), reports that nearly 12% of children who weigh less than 60 pounds are riding completely unrestrained in their safety seats.

“We believe that the AirGATE ‘Smart Buckle’ addresses two serious situations surrounding child safety and the use of child car seats: seat buckles not engaged and children who are mistakenly left unattended in vehicles,” said Michael Sheriff, CEO of AirGATE Technologies.
