Safe and efficient city logistics

The SmartHelm research project addresses two central questions – how can courier drivers on cargo bikes be better protected and how can their work be additionally supported?

The Project

With the continuously increasing relevance of e-commerce, logistical challenges for logistics providers are also growing. Environmentally friendly solutions are becoming increasingly interesting, such as delivering to customers by bicycle courier. A smart bicycle helmet as a sensory carrier with eye movement camera, speech support and electroencephalography will help to identify factors that influence the attention and stress of cyclists. In the course of the three-year project, this approach is to examine the topic of attention in road traffic from a new perspective.
