Background/Objectives: The basic idea of the project is to make the helmet so smart that without wearing it the driver won’t be able to start the bike, so that it can ensure the safety of the riders. The main purpose of the project is to encourage wearing helmet.
Method: The system design will be such that without wearing the helmet the rider cannot start two wheelers. The helmet will be connected to vehicle key ignition systems which will be electronically controlled. The smart helmet will be having micro switches fitted inside it, which will act as our switch for on/off ignition. It consist of a RF transmitter and an RF receiver system, the bike will not get started without wearing helmet by the driver, as the rider wear helmet an RF signals radiate from the transmitter and once these RF signals get sensed by the receiver placed in the ignition switch on the bike, bike will get started.
Findings: People prefer motorcycles over the car as it is much cheaper to run, easier to repair, easier to park and flexible in traffic. In India more than 37 million people are using two wheelers. Since usage is high accident percentage of two wheelers are also high compared to four wheelers. Motorcycles have a higher rate of fatal accidents than trucks and buses. According to Ministry of Road Transport and Highways, Government of India there are around 1,44,391 bike accidents occurred in 2015 due to which 1,35,343 were injured and 36,803 were killed. Fatal injuries to the brain are an important reason behind deaths due to the road accidents. Therefore, a person riding a two wheeler must wear a helmet in order to protect his skull. Studies show that usage of helmet can save accident death by 30 to 40 percent. The risk of death is 2.5 times more among riders not wearing a helmet compared with those wearing a helmet. Riders wearing a helmet have a greater probability of survival during an accident. This project aims for accident avoidance, safety and security of bike riders.
Applications: This can be used to minimize the accidents and casualties during riding can be used in broadcasting a message among the youth about the road safety and also a number of cases of violating traffic rules can be reduced.
