New NACA connected helmet captures attention at EICMA exhibition in Milan
13th November 2018
From 7th to 12th November 2018, Xavier Pillet, manager of UFO, at the EICMA motorcycle exhibition in Milan presented his new helmet: NACA Helmet. Its new connected technologies developed in partnership with ID Telematics captivated the public.
After a first successful introduction at the Paris Motor Exhibition last October, UFO unveils its new connected NACA Helmet at the EICMA motorcycle exhibition.
The technologies integrated in the helmet in partnership with ID Telematics's engineers, experts in custom hardware/software solutions, offer bikers a connected and secure ride:
A brake light is integrated at the back of the helmet, while respecting the ergonomics and performance of the NACA helmet. Based on an accelerometer and a gyroscope, the biker's braking activate the light system and so increases the biker's visibility while driving.
A fall detector is also integrated into the NACA helmet which, thanks to an accelerometer and a gyroscope, allows to dectet biker's falls. In case of prolonged immobilization, relatives will be alerted by SMS from the biker's GPS position, for a faster support.
A bone conduction audio system is integrated into the helmet, allowing the biker to listen to music via his Smartphone (Bluetooth connection) while maintaining hearing of surrounding sound events.
These new technologies integrated into the NACA helmet attracted many visitors to UFO stand. The commercialisation of these three new options is scheduled for the first quarter of 2019.
