Smart helmet that helps to prevent road accidents

Preventable accidents are increasing with the growing number of micromobility users on the road.

A wearable device providing real time interaction with the surrounding environment using warning lights to alert road users of the rider’s driving intentions. The turning light is activated by a rolling head gesture, a rear light warns drivers behind of a sudden stop, a third light inside the helmet extends the visibility of the rider by warning them of vehicles approaching from behind.
