Helmets to signal accident to hospital, wearer's family
Chennai: The Techmet, a helmet designed by the Indian Institute of Technology, Madras (IIT-M) students, will inform the wearer's family as well as the emergency services in case of an accident and will also give the location of the mishap site.

The helmet is one of the products made by the IIT-M students which will be showcased at Shaastra, the 11th edition of the institute's technical festival.

The Shaastra 2009 aims at showcasing the sustainability of the projects. The participants in the 'SOS Cycle' project can use the cycle as a means of transport rather than the bus inside the institute. In the 'SOS Energy' project, the various hostels will compete with one another for a month to save as much energy as possible to compensate for the extra use of electricity during the event, as 'SOS Recycle' will attempt to make Shaastra a zero waste festival. Also, an energy audit will be done during the four day event.

A conference has also been planned to develop practical and feasible solutions to tackle sustainability, energy, urbanization and financial issues. The speakers include Abha Joshi Ghani, Urban Strategy Manager, World Bank, K C Sivaramakrishnan, Chairman, Centre for Policy Research, Akansha Chaurey, Associate Director, The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI).

The festival will feature a summit where aspiring entrepreneurs will get a chance to interact with founders of startups. An air show, a choreographed and professional aerobatics show by technical artists and their extreme machines, spirit of engineering projects including a process to create a eco-friendly fuel from algae called Algiesel and Touch Talk, which aims to provide a fast and easy way of communication for the speech impaired are the other features of the event. A laser show and Shaastra car, where students will assemble a car from scratch, is also among the events.
