Even though there is a life safety with helmet wearing, most bikers will also complains how difficult to wear on heads in this hot summers.
Three Mechanical engineering graduates from Hyderabad have found an innovative and comfortable solution for this problem – Air Conditioned Helmet!
Imagine wearing a helmet that keeps your head cool, sweat free, your mind calm during the rides on summer heats.
Named ‘Jarsh’ – an acronym for Just another rare safe helmet, the idea was executed by three mechanical engineers, graduated from VNR Vignana Jyothi Institute of Engineering and Technology, Bachupally, in 2016 – Kausthub Kaundinya, Sreekanth Kommula and Anand Kumar.
This trio has designed industrial AC helmet and is planning to utilise the same technology in the road safety.
Speaking to The Hindu, Kausthub Kaundinya narrated the idea behind AC helmet. Travelling long distances like 60 kms to his engineering college on the highway of the city made him to work on solution for this problem.

Along with his friends Sreekanth kommula and Anand kumar, Kaustubh has decided to explore the market. Their research with this idea revealed no such product was available in the Indian market. And so they took it upon themselves in execution of this idea.
These industrial helmets come equipped with a cooling technology and are available in two kinds of capacity. The one with 2-hour battery life costs Rs 5,000 and the other variant with an eight-hour battery life is priced at Rs 5,500.
This product startup is now being supported by the Telangana government’s Research and Innovation Circle of Hyderabad. The innovative helmet which was on display for its pilot sales has already found customers in the Indian Navy which wants it for its dockyard workers and Tata Motors which wants to utilise it for workers at its Lucknow plant, reported the Times of India.
The trio even gifted one helmet to IT Minister, K.T. Rama Rao, at the BioAsia2018 summit.
The trio has decided to donate over 20 such industrial AC helmets to Hyderabad Traffic Police in April.
