A bicycle helmet is critically important to bicyclist safety. Bicyclists are at a much higher risk of suffering injuries, especially head injuries in accidents, and wearing the right kind of bicycle helmet can play a critical role in determining whether a bicyclist survives his injuries, or succumbs to them.
Although, modern bicycle helmets are sleeker, lighter, stronger and sturdier than their counterparts of the past, the fact is that helmets can be made tougher and more durable to help protect the skull from severe impact during a bicycle accident. A group of inventors is launching a new Smart bike helmet that uses innovative technology to help bicyclists avoid accidents.
The Smart bike helmet has cameras that are located both in the front and back to scan the environment around a bicyclist. Information from around the environment is processed and sent to the bicyclist. The bicyclist is alerted when a car is approaching him from behind, or when a vehicle is in his blind spot. The helmet comes with red brake lights that turn on when it detects that the bicyclist is reducing speed.
