Bike Helmet Black Box
The core of this invention is the inclusion of a "black box" recorder in bicycle and motor bike helmets. This black box recorder would be similar to other black box recorders, would monitor and record key information, which can then be recovered and replayed after an incident. The key information that would be recorded is speed, velocity, altitude, G-Forces, impact force and the like. The information could be used variably for (a) identifying root cause of accidents for insurance and legal reasons, (b) identifying technology opportunities for improvements to helmets, (c) creating databases of user habits with the opportunity for educational-based improvements to prevent accidents, and (d) in creating data that may aid medical treatment where head injuries have occurred.
