Driving without a helmet is highly risky and nobody knows what the real consequence is if someone met with an accident. Time and again, traffic policemen keep advising the citizens to wear helmets while driving because life is precious.
Sometimes, people feel discomfort in wearing helmets and which is why they are least bothered to wear it. But time will surely teach a lesson to those people why wearing helmets is important while driving.
They are designed and made for people’s safety. But, you don’t often see a majority of people wearing helmets in India and that’s the truth.
After increased awareness about wearing helmets, the demand for helmets is high now. Almost every rider has a helmet at home. Some forget to wear it while others are not interested to wear it at times and they specifically have no reason for it.
However, as a citizen of India, we should remember that safety is the priority over anything else. We should take care of ourselves.
And here comes 22-year-old engineering student who has invented a smart helmet which can save precious lives globally. Jawwad Patel already knew that people are least bothered to wear helmets in India. So he has come up with a great innovation that is going to cause a massive change in the country.
Jawwad Patel designed a smart helmet after his cousin encountered an accident. The smart helmet which he made is paired with the bike in such a manner that the bike would start only when the driver wears a helmet also considering that he is not under the influence of alcohol.
The helmet also warns the driver if he is smoking or using a mobile phone while driving. Interestingly, it also warns the driver if the vehicle is overspeeding or overloaded. The helmet comes with a GPS-system which will help the owner trace the vehicle if it is stolen.
In case, if the driver met with a major accident, then it will send emergency alerts to his known people including the exact location of the accident.
Besides Smart helmet, this Hyderabad-based Jawwad Patel has many other super cool innovations to his credit. Some of them are dewdrop device, smart lock, smart irrigation system, solar car and a quadcopter. All these innovations can be checked out in his site Jawwad Patel Lab.
Jawwad is deeply connected with electronics right from when he was 12-13 years old. He is grateful to his mom and dad for assisting him set up his own laboratory at their home and for supporting him. He is a avid follower of Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam and wants the government to set up as many as tech incubation centres for the youngsters to help them innovate.
