Pichai also said Google is working with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) to develop the first-ever helmet with an automatic emergency braking system.NHTAA also is considering using its “Smart Auto” initiative to create a helmet that uses advanced sensors to automatically detect if the driver is at fault, Pichari said.
The new helmets are expected to be unveiled during a special briefing with journalists later on Monday, according in an update on Google+.
The announcement is expected to include the latest information on the company and its next products.
The company has previously said it will introduce a new helmet that will offer better crash protection, including anti-slip technology.
Google’s new helmet may be aimed at consumers, rather than the elderly, according Pichaei, who added that the helmet will offer the same protection as the ones that currently come with Google Glass, the company first announced last month.
The helmet will include an integrated head-up display and two cameras, and it will also come with an infrared remote.
Pichakai said that it will be made in Germany and will cost around $130.
Google has said it is looking to partner with several different manufacturers to bring its new helmets to market.
The company has already said it hopes to release the helmets in the second half of 2018, although no firm date has been announced.
