 Warning About 'Imminent Crash' Given Out by Cycle Helmets

A new prototype helmet has been developed for cyclists that can warn them about an "imminent crash". The helmet, developed by Volvo, warns a vehicle when it goes too close to a cyclist. The helmet also lets them know if they are in a vehicle's blind spot so they can take action to avoid a collision, the BBC reported.

The helmet works with popular smartphone fitness monitoring apps that track the location and speed of a cyclist. This information was shared with any Volvo vehicles nearby that are equipped with the firm's City Safety system. This alerts drivers to the presence of a cyclist even if the rider was in a blind spot or when visibility is poor.


The smart pedals have also been unveiled at CES which have in-built sensors that spot when a bicycle has been nabbed and can report where it has been taken.

They are self-powered and can monitor what happens to the bike to which it was attached.
