Motorcycle Helmet Blind Spot Monitoring

Security icon, disabled. A blue padlock, locked.

Motorcycle safety has been improving in recent years with better designed protective gear and the integration of certain vehicle technologies like anti-lock braking systems into motorcycles. But there is still a sizable gap in the safety features found in contemporary cars and those found in motorcycles. The vision of this project is to capitalize on the use of blind spot detection for motorcycles. Like cars, the system will monitor for objects in the rider’s blind spot and give them a soft alert if an obstacle is detected.
