Abstract: Various safety gears and techniques are available in cars but save for the helmet, not much of safety gears have been introduced for the bike riders. Bike riders indulge in fatal accidents during their rides and race riders in spite of wearing the best safety gears get injured severely with spinal cord and chest being most vulnerable during the impact. Daily riders or race riders, accidents are inevitable. It’s entirely upon us to equip ourselves with an additional safety gear for our own safety purposes. The project, safety inflation bag, provides the best solution to prevent injuries to spinal cord and chest. Here, a pneumatic actuator is used to inflate the air channels sewn inside the bag which provides protection for chest and spinal cord. This technique is implemented in a bag, as bag is most commonly used during bike rides. Be it for office goers or for riders on long trips, bag is necessary and fixating the safety gear inside the bag serves the rider than just for carrying items. It could save the life. It could prevent him from enduring critical injury to spinal cord or chest. During the time of impact, the pneumatic cylinder goes off, releasing the compressed air through the air channels pressed against chest and spinal cord thus inflating them at the right time to provide a solid balloon protection. This project could serve as the first step to a major safety innovation for bike riders.
