19,450 cyclists were killed on EU roads between 2010 and 2018. Cyclist deaths in the EU are declining eight times more slowly than deaths of motor vehicle occupants. A communicating helmet that send information to other road-users and also receive information by sensors of different kinds has the potential to support prevention and severity of accidents. The project will look into 1) What can be developed for the rural case and what can be developed with a urban case perspective? And 2) The degree of technical complexity, from stand alone helmet solutions to solutions that involves cloud solutions and new gears on the bicycle. The project aims to develop a ”proof of concept” for the case of an intelligent bicycle helmet to be ready for marketing.
