In its Smart Helmet Sensor System, BeBop Sensors claims the first helmet system employing a Force Location Sensor System. The company’s flexible fabric sensors provide high resolution, location-specific impact information.
In addition to sensing velocity thresholds, a latticed array of over 40 sensors embedded in the helmet liner, gives it the ability to track the exact impact point. This allows the tracking and recording of multiple impacts in real-time that are stored in in the system’s ferroelectric RAM (FRAM).
Another of the system’s firsts is its ability to capture a complete high-speed movie of the entire impact incident from the head’s point of view,providingreal-time feedback with a customizable set of commands to a paired Bluetooth device for first responders and post-trauma study.
