To avoid the road accidents in India, VIT University students have come up with an idea and developed a device to avoid the road accidents.
They have developed the three inventions, which are related to the use of helmets and prevention of usage of mobile phone while driving.
As per the reports, the prime reason for the road accidents is absence of helmet and use of mobile phone while driving. These inventions were developed by Dr K Ganesan, Director, Technology Information Forecasting Assessment Council-Center for Relevant and Excellence (TIFAC-CORE) at VIT.
VIT University, Vice-Chancellor has said that we have been applied for patents for these inventions.
Their first invention is censored helmet. How does it work?
- The helmet is fitted with the enhanced safety sensors that can sense direction and speed of the vehicle.
- An audio device is fitted in order inform the about the rider strapped the helmet properly through bi0directional communication unit.
- These helmets will also make to communicate with the two-wheeler fitted with the sensors.
- The electronic control unit and a mobile communication system enabling the vehicle and the helmet to ‘talk' to each other ensuring that riders are wearing a helmet properly and are not intoxicated.
- It also informs rider that the side-stand are in place before riding, preventing vehicle theft.
The second invention, an ‘automatic helmet detection system for two wheelers,' is invented by a team headed by K Ganesan.
How does it work?
- This device can be fixed in traffic signals and toll plazas.
- It determines, if any of the riders riding the bike without a helmet.
- It also tracks the vehicle number and gives the owners name and address.
- It will be able to dispatch an automatic ticket to the driver in case of violations.
- Being fitted with a GPS device and a timer-circuit, it can be used for legal proceedings having the ability to record relevant images with location, date and time.
A third invention is mobile jammer. How does it work?
- It is used for jamming the mobile phones.
- The system can be built as an add-on module without altering the design of the vehicle.
- It can be fitted in buses and lorries and can jam the driver's mobile phone signals.
