Keeping the safety factor of riders in mind, TVS will soon introduce bikes and scooters with cameras to detect whether or not the rider is wearing a helmet. The system developed is such, that a message would pop up on the digital display reminding the rider to wear a helmet. If TVS is able to pull this off, it will have a first-of-its-kind product that is developed with such latest technology for safety. The camera detectors might debut their entry into the market on products like Apache RR310, Ntorq or iQube electric scooter. This safety system is under development on various models and will roll out in the market soon.
TVS also claims that it is working on several other safety and rider assistance systems like early warning and automatic braking systems on two-wheelers. Having a two-wheeler in India has always been thought of as a risky job. With an increased amount of accidents and road casualties, the implementation of riding gears is now a necessity.
Mumbai Traffic Police had issued a notification on making helmets for pillion riders compulsory and warned of action against those who don’t comply with the rules. Quite a few two-wheeler owners don’t follow traffic norms by not wearing helmets. There is an imposition of a INR 500 fine or suspension of license for helmet-less riders. Violators will be charged under Section 177 of Motor Vehicle Act of 1988.
