The Objective of this paper is to significantly increase the safety of motorcyclists by using easily available technologies to automate the control of headlamps and detection of an accident thereby making the Helmet Intelligent. It has been made mandatory by a lot of countries to wear a helmet while riding including India. The number of two wheelers is drastically increasing by every passing day. And yet, the safety provided has a long way to go. The proposed idea is achieved by using an

All of these equipments are connected to an Arduino Board which is the brain of the Helmet. Headlamps are automatically positioned as required which is calculated by the amount of Rider's Facial movement. The values from the Accelerometer and the Sensor are used to detect an accident, and if yes, alerts are sent to prioritized contacts through the GSM module.
