A Talking Bike 2011-28-0005

No bike can express what it actually feels. Talking bike indicates as and when changes occur in a bike that is unknown to the driver. So here we have attempted to indicate what actually bike feels in the dashboard using LEDs.
It is necessary to keep the vehicle in proper condition for effective running, longer life and accident prevention. If the problem in a bike is not sensed well before, then efficient running is not possible. Hence vehicle condition monitoring system through dashboard is implemented which displays the exact condition of the vehicle.
Different cheap sensors are developed and attached to different parts of the bike and its condition is indicated by LED in the dashboard. These cheap sensors can able to sense fuel level, Engine oil condition, tire pressure condition, chain tightness and battery condition. If this conditions are not measured in time then mileage of the vehicle will come low; emission problem will arise; prone to get accident as well as lower life of the vehicle.
Now the driver can know when he has to service his vehicle or replace the bike parts. Cheap sensors are developed and hence these sensors can be fitted in bikes and cars. Thus longer life of the vehicle can be obtained.
