Abstract/Artist Statement

With 47.5 million cyclists in the United States, bicycles provide a portable, low cost form of transportation. The law requires riders to wear helmets for safety, meaning there exists a large bike helmet market. Many bike riders are concentrated in cities, and use navigation on their smartphones to reach destinations they haven’t been to before. Using a smartphone while operating a bicycle can be distracting and potentially dangerous. To help people get to where they need, a helmet that integrates navigation and other information in its display could be useful to users.

The purpose of this project is to create a bike helmet with a heads up visor that displays speed, navigation, object detection, and time to the user. The helmet will contain a speaker which outputs audio navigation instructions, along with a microphone that accepts user commands. An iOS application will provide navigation and user command functionality. Electrical components will be added to the helmet in a way that is unobtrusive, and does not compromise the user safety. Any retrofitting will occur along international safety regulations. Our group has a budget of 400 dollars to complete, but the total cost of building the project should be under 150 dollars. The overall design will be user-friendly and enhance the biking experience.
