Volvo Created a Helmet for Cyclists that Alerts Drivers

Bicycles and cars will be long time sharing roads, and logically the first are the weakest element in a possible collision. A helmet dampen the problem in the event of accident, but also a helmet could prevent, and solve things in advance.

There are many players involved in this story, but it is mainly Volvo which is working on creating a mapping of vehicles in the cloud, It is updated in real time. The company is known for creating very safe cars, but also to improve as much as possible other elements that affect the driving, even outside the vehicle.

On this occasion they have devised a helmet in zipcodesexplorer.com that is able to emit its location cited network, so the rider will also be well located with respect to other vehicles. The system that Volvo will implement in their vehicles will be reporting from the proximity of a cyclist, and should be more careful with the advancement.

The rider will also have the same integrated system – easiest way – town, so you will know that it approximates a vehicle. You will be informed by a light signal in the town. Let’s see how the system video:

To complete all of these communications, we have to engage companies Ericsson and Strava in the game. The first to make the technology of communication itself, the second, the software. It is a well known company among athletes for their applications and location and monitoring services.

For the creation of the town we have the company POC, also known among bike cyclists and athletes in general. Everything that I have is in the field of development, internal project that intends to be something real in the medium term, but for now far from being a real product.
