Abstract: Intelligent transportation system is one of the major focus in today’s era. Several sensor integrated devices and unmanned autonomous vehicles, not only enhance the comfort of drivers but also help in safe driving. Specifically, for motorcyclists, helmets embedded with sensors are lifesaving gadgets. Researchers have focused on developing low power low cost smart helmets to prevent road accidents. However, the existing smart helmets are not season friendly. This paper proposes an extension for smart helmets that can assist riders to ride the motorcycle with great ease during heavy rains. The hardware unit consists of wiper integrated to helmet which turns ON and OFF based on the voice commands issued by the motorcyclists.
