Abstract
Safety and comfort are the two major issues to be consider for two wheelers. For safety purpose bike rider must wear helmet. Most of the deaths happen in accidents due to head injuries. A head injury can mean brain injury so to avoid deaths during accidents it is advisable to wear helmets. Helmet is protective equipment for bike rider. The outer shell is made up of polycarbonate plastic ,fiber glass and soft inner layer is made of expanded polypropylene EPS foam.it is a shock absorber to support the head during collisions. Government is enforcing strict laws about safety and awareness on wearing helmet all over the country. These strict rules are not being followed by most of the people due to various reasons like discomfort and cost. Generally discomfort due to sweat formation inside the helmet is one of the major considerable reasons for not wearing helmet. Especially in high temperature regions like anantapur, where the vehicle riders are highly reluctant to wear the helmet for this reason. It is therefore proposed design and implements a cooling system to cool the inner area of the helmet so as to ensure comfort to the person who wears the helmet. The proposed cooling system shall be small and light in weight so that the mobility of the helmet is not restricted, further the weight of the helmet is within the limits. This proposed cooling system works on thermoelectric effect which is generally stated as the junction of two dissimilar metals the energy level of conducting electrons is forced to increase or decrease. A decrease in the energy level emits thermal energy, while an increase will absorb thermal energy from its surrounding. The cooling produced based on peltier effect is discovered in 1834. The basic design of thermoelectric helmet consists of various components like peltiermodule, cooling chamber and heat sink. The electric power will supplied by means of 12volts DC battery. The peltier module is a semiconductor based electric component that functions as a small heat pump. The above components will be arranged in order to produce the appropriate cooling effect inside the helmet. The numerical and experimental results showed a good agreement and indicated that the te
