Anyone who’s driven in India (or attempted to cross the street there, for that matter) will know the country doesn’t have the highest levels of road safety.
Enter The Good Road, an initiative supported by Castrol and the Bangalore Traffic Police.
Part of the campaign is a smart motorcycle helmet that connects wirelessly to the bike itself. Sensors in the bike recognise when the helmet is being worn, which means riders have to be wearing it to start the engine. When they take the helmet off, the engine turns off too.
So far, so safe. Now we just need something similar for pedestrians…
