Abstract

A wireless-enabled helmet paired with Smartphone will effectively reduce the chance of accidents. Many youngsters choose bike riding for fun, economic, less parking space and are easily manageable in traffic compared to other automobiles. The proposed work ensures the riders are wearing helmets using IR sensors during travel, intimate the accident location to a nearby hospital and family members. This wearable device consists of many sensors which will send the readings to the Arduino application through WIFI. Most importantly, the motorbike ignition system is connected in such a way that it will not trigger on until the rider is wearing a helmet and without consuming alcohol. This system is widely used during night travelling, to find whether the traveller is tired or sleepy. This work is further enhanced with the built-in navigation system to provide a tense free ride.
