A Smart Hard Hat (SHH) is an intelligent hard hat that is equipped with various sensors and collects data from the helmet-wearer's environment. This data is intended to improve work safety and ensure greater work effectiveness.
Intelligent hard hats are worn by workers in logistics and construction, as well as in civil engineering and construction, among others, and protect the wearer from hazards. The built-in sensors observe and track the environmental conditions to which the user is exposed during work. In addition to data from the environment, smart hard hats can also collect various biometric data such as respiration, pulse rate or fatigue and alert the user to health restrictions. This can be done acoustically or haptically.
