A smart helmet with a built-in drowsiness and alcohol detection system

Vehicle accidents are common incidents of these days. Roughly 1.35 million people are died annually due to road accidents all around the world [1]. Apart from that, nearly 20 – 50 million people suffer from non-fatal injuries and long term disabilities. Most of them are motorbike riders. The main reasons for those accidents are drinking and drowsiness. Drinking and driving increase the possibility of an accident happening. Even a little consumption of alcohol can double the possibility of happening an accident [2]. The based on the previous studies, a risk of a death can be reduced by almost 40% by wearing a helmet [3]. However, the main purpose of the traditional helmet is to protect the head from an impact.
