Helmet plays a very important in case of accidents. But if the person is knocked out cold or gets hurt pretty bad unable to call for help, the ICEdot Crash Sensor paired with a smartphone will ensure that you get help as quickly as possible.
The sensors mounted on the helmet detect sudden motion as in case of accident and sends a signal via Bluetooth low energy to your phone. The smartphone app sends out a message to the emergency contacts and listed people by the user along with GPS coordinates. However if the accident is not severe and the person is all right he can cancel the message sending as 30 seconds are provided to shut down the countdown clock.
ICEdot has partnered with a Denver based company SenseTech LLC to launch this product which will make its debut at the Interbike trade show in Las Vegas later this month. It is expected to hit the market next year at an estimated price of $200 for the sensor along with the app package.
