Cosmo Connected unveil connected brake light

Published: 05 January 2017

French company Cosmo Connected have unveiled what they say is the world's first connected brake light for motorcycle riders at CES 2017.

The Cosmo is an extra brake light consisting of 12 LEDs, which attaches to the back of the helmet. Once in place it can be configured to act as an extra brake light, illuminating when the in-built accelerometer detects deceleration, or it can be programmed to blink via the mobile app.

Th company claims the light - which attaches via magnets - can be attached to any helmet currently on the market.

The light isn't just a light, though. It could potentially save your life. If it detects a collision, it will contact the emergency services with your location and medical profile via the app.

"Our goal with Cosmo Connected is to create a new safety standard for motorcyclists," said Romain Afflelou, president of Cosmo Connected. “Cosmo is not just a connected gadget, but a powerful tool designed to save lives."

The Cosmo Connected will be available in May 2017, priced at €99 (£84).
