Two engineering students in Karnataka's Kalaburagi district have created a 'bluetooth enabled route guiding helmet'. The students Yogesh and Abhijeet, studying in PDA College, are in the fourth semester of their engineering course.
The product has been designed as an effort to help encourage helmets while riding on the roads. It helps people navigate and not get lost when in a new city with no one to guide.
We made this helmet, because we faced problems with directions when travelling in different cities. We do not know how people will guide us and whether they are right or wrong. So, in order to avoid such situations, we made this route-guiding helmet.Abhijeet, Student
In terms of usage, the helmet is extremely user-friendly and harmless and works exactly like OK Google voice commands in the mobile phones.
‘It’s very easy to handle. All you need to do is take your mobile, switch on your Bluetooth and this device, connect them and give commands. Everyone knows about OK Google. If you give voice commands, it will do whatever you want. You can say OK Google, navigate me to whatever your destination point is and it’ll find the best route for you. If you go in a wrong direction, it will ask you to turn back. If there’s another route, it will reroute and take you to that destination.Abhijeet
One of the most striking features of the helmet is its inbuilt Bluetooth speaker, which the students claim is harmless. They added that the user will have to connect their phone through bluetooth, which will navigate them with the help of Google maps.
This helmet has built-in speakers and it uses Bluetooth 4.0 with radio waves so it does not damage the brain.Yogesh, Student
Yogesh also claimed that the helmet has a cooling sheath attached to the screen of the helmet which is ideal for night vision and prevents accidents by refracting the light that comes from other vehicles.
The students said the cost of the helmet is Rs 1500.
