Equipping a construction helmet with a sensor can detect the onset of carbon monoxide poisoning

Virginia Tech researchers integrated a specific type of sensor into a typical construction helmet to allow continuous and noninvasive monitoring of construction workers’ blood gas saturation levels. The results of their study showed that a user of this helmet would be warned of impending carbon monoxide poisoning with a probability of greater than 99 percent, and won them a Best Paper award.
