The impact of Accident effect, a lot of human livelihoods and their career, due to the negligence of wearing the helmets on a daily basis in India. To end this suffering, we have a social responsibility development projects. The motorcycle driver without wearing the helmet can be killed if it hit or crash and bring his life in danger. Wearing a helmet reduces the possibility of danger of life. In India, for example, wearing a helmet is mandatory in the law and the drivers need to follow it. Similar rules are in many countries. Therefore, this project is designed to improve motorcycle safety and make motorcyclist compulsory for wearing it. As you can see, we have a lot to think about it. It is a type that is used in the driver's helmet to drive a bike safely. The aim of this paper is to protect the driver life and decrease the death rate at road accident by making the helmet. It uses a hands-free kit and advances feature like compulsory of wearing helmet and theft security. Bluetooth wireless communication module (2.4 GHz band transceiver) can be used for transmission between the transmitter and the receiver. The driver needs to wear a helmet otherwise a helmet automatically keeps the engine OFF. If rider wears the helmet, ignition will be automatically ON. In the sensor, we transmit information to the wireless communication module, which is connected to the bike. This system is one of the devices built in the helmet; the second devices are inside the bike. Monitor recognizes the power devices with a Force-sensing resistor (FSR). Wireless data receiver, encoder, and a transmitter are used to communicate helmet with the bike. AT mega controller in both devices used as a CPU. It is one of the most advanced electronic projects for the Road Safety Systems.
