Helmet Detection System In Development

  • In other news, Ola Electric is said to be working on a helmet detection system.
  • This system utilises a camera to identify whether the rider is wearing a helmet or not.
  • The camera sends this information to the Vehicle Control Unit (VCU), which then communicates it to the Motor Control Unit.
  • Based on this information, the Motor Control Unit decides whether to switch the vehicle to Ride mode or not.
  • When the system detects that the rider is not wearing a helmet while the vehicle is in Ride mode, it will automatically switch the EV to Park mode.
