Jarvish Unveils AI and AR Smart Motorcycle Helmets
Intelligent helmet systems specialist JARVISH launches its X-Series smart motorcycle helmets. The X-AR and X models have been designed with a range of technology integrations, such as voice control, noise cancellation, built-in memory to give riders a safer, more enjoyable on-road experience. The X-AR also includes an AR-powered head-up display (HUD) for riders who prefer visual instructions.

The X-Series connects with voice activation services such as Amazon Alexa, Apple’s Siri or OK Google (no tap to talk). Journeys can be recorded in FHD video via the built-in front 2K camera and stored on memory cards in the helmet. The helmet can also live stream directly to social media, while the app lets users download footage to a smartphone and personal cloud server. Both helmets support wireless and micro-USB charging (wireless charging pad sold separately).
The X-AR helmet can display directions and notify the wearer of traffic and weather conditions, speed and caller IDs on the HUD, which can be controlled and retracted easily via voice command. It even shows 2K rear-view images so the rider has 360° visibility while on the road.
Jeremy Lu, CEO of JARVISH, said: “Our vision is to enhance the motorcycling experience with smart features that mean a rider can focus on the road ahead without any distraction. Police officers and motorcycle riders in Taiwan are already wearing the first generation of JARVISH helmets, we believe our latest models, X-Series will prove to be just as popular worldwide.”
Both the X-AR and X model are fully certified, including ECE R22.05 (Europe, Australia), DOT (US and Canada), CNS 2396, CNS 13438, CNS 13439 (Asia), FCC (electronic radiation safety certifications). Also, Apple MFi certified.
The Kickstarter campaign kicks off on November 27. The MSRP is USD 1,599 for JARVISH X-AR, USD 699 for JARVISH X. JARVISH will exhibit the X model helmets and the X-AR prototypes for the first time in public at CES 2019.
