Bicycle Smart Helmet

Date created
Cycle Bright Solutions believe that the current helmets can greatly benefit from the advancements of technology by the creation of a smart helmet. We aim to create a helmet which will increase the safety of riders by making it easier for cars and cyclists to communicate with each other. The conventional hand signals are inadequate at best and downright dangerous at worst. They require the cyclist to remove one hand from the handle bar to perform hand motions that might throw them off balance and even then, they may be not even be feasible at times due to variety of factors such as grade or conditions of the road. Furthermore, these hand signals can be hard to see in low light conditions. To address these issues, the Cycle Bright Solutions' helmets will feature an RGB LED panel at the back of the helmet that can display left and right signals as well as brake lights to warn the other cars in a timely manner. Thus, the Smart Helmet will help the riders to signal their directions at any time of day without requiring them to remove their hands from the handlebar.
Undergraduate Engineering students are required to complete a group-based, two-course capstone sequence: ENSC 405W and ENSC 440.  Groups form company structures and create an innovative product that potentially acts as a solution to a real-life problem.  This collection archives the following assignments: proposal, design specifications, requirements specifications, and proof of concept.
