Abstract: Motorcycle accidents are happening with alarming frequency and the number of fatalities is also increasing day by day. Currently there are no technological interventions being used to prevent such events. This paper proposes a Smart Helmet system using GPS and GSM modules which will help in avoiding such situations to a significant extent. The smart helmet has a module to detect whether the rider is wearing the helmet and also analyses the breath of the rider to check for consumption of alcohol. The rider will not be able to start the vehicle if the rider is drunk and is not wearing the helmet. The current situation is to take measures for the bike handlers who would loose their lives due to alcohol consumption and for not wearing the helmet. In order to overcome the death rate of the people due to this, we can use “Smart helmet which has automatic Alcohol detection and Accident detecting technique in it”.
