Classification of brake light that mounts on the back of a motorcyclist’s helmet
The item concerned is referred to as the “Cosmo Connected.” This electronic device is a brake light that mounts on the back of a motorcyclist’s helmet. It incorporates an accelerometer, a gyrometer, an LED signaling light, a processor and a Bluetooth transceiver.
Once mounted to a helmet this device uses its LED lights to signal when the motorcyclists slows down and/or stops. It uses the accelerometer to sense the reduction in speed and the gyrometer to detect a fall. The processor is used to analyze the input from these sensors.
The smartphone application makes it possible to have the user’s cell phone make a variety of emergency notification telephone calls automatically. In the event of an accident the gyrometer will detect the crash and send a signal to the user’s cell phone via the Bluetooth connection. Once the cell phone receives the accident notification from the Cosmo Connected, the cell phone will make emergency notification calls and even provide the cell phone’s GPS location to the intended party through the use of the Cosmo Connected
