Bengaluru Techie Designs An AC Helmet To Keep Riders Cool

Bengaluru techie Sandeep Dahiya has designed a prototype of an AC helmet that will keep riders cool even when it is scorching hot outside.

Nobody likes wearing a helmet, especially in summer. Unless you are a motorbike enthusiast who wants to show off his riding essentials. Helmets do protect and save lives, there are heavy and suffocating. Especially if that day is a sunny one, that’s a whole new level of discomfort. To solve this problem, a Bengaluru techie has come up with a solution.

Sandeep Dahiya, a multinational company’s director has designed a prototype of an AC helmet that will keep you cool even when it is scorching hot outside. Dahiya, who comes from Bengaluru, has a passion for designing user-friendly products. He has worked on his invention at his own garage-turned workshop at his house.

It was four and a half years ago when Sandeep saw two riders who were taking off their helmets when stopping at a traffic signal that Sandeep came up with this idea. Since then, eight different models off “Vatanukul” have been created. The final version runs on 2 Volts of DC current and is powered by the bike’s battery. The best thing about this AC helmet is that it doesn’t need any external energy source as it can be directly plugged into the bike’s battery.

Most of the helmets on the market weigh from 800gr to 2kg. Although Sandeep’s Vatanukul consists of two parts, it weighs no more than 1.7kg. The first unit of the helmet has several rubber tubes for the helmet’s air circulation. The other part is a wearable component, similar to a backpack. It has a heat exchanger, reverse thermocouple, control, and blower unit.

With a semiconductor which works like a thermostat, the heat exchanging releases cool air. There is a convenient remote controlled AC device which is connected to the air circulator tubes.

Sandeep has been testing out the AC helmet by wearing it himself from his house to his office for a month now. In an interview, the innovator said that many people have asked him what he has on his back. They are surprised to know that it is an AC helmet. The helmet may be a bit heavy, it’s definitely going to be a life-saver for riders when traveling under the scorching sun.
