Cosmo Shows Off Helmet-Mounted Brake Light

We all know the importance of visibility on the road, in terms of what we can see and what we can’t. Cosmo Connected has provided a detachable helmet-mounted brake light to alert drivers approaching from behind.

The 5.3-ounce Cosmo attaches to the back of the motorcycle helmet via a magnet. The polycarbonate and EPDM rubber case houses 12 LED lights and is weather resistant. The lithium polymer battery is good for 7.5 hours of operation on a single charge, and is can be programable to act either as a normal brake light — illuminating on deceleration when sensed by the built-in accelerometer — or it can be set via an app to blink a constant pattern.

“Our goal is to create a new safety standard for motorcyclists,” said Romain Afflelou, president of Cosmo Connected. In addition to the enhanced visibility, the Cosmo’s least noticeable feature is one that could save a rider’s life. Should the unit detect a collision, it will send a command to the connected app to alert emergency services along with geolocation info and medical profile. The app can also automatically alert emergency contacts.

The connected features can also be used for real-time monitoring of locations that can be shared with trusted parties. The system can also anonymize the data to determine high-risk areas for potential motorcyclist collisions. “Cosmo is not just a connected gadget, but a powerful tool designed to save lives,” added Afflelou.

The Cosmo Connected accessory will be released in May 2017 and will retail for $99.00.
