The Kunming and Yuxi branches of China Southern Power Grid have put the first 100 smart safety helmets into use at Yunnan Electricity Supply and Charge Co.

Developed for three years by the Yunnan branch of China Southern Power Grid, the helmets can adapt to and sense neighboring electricity pressure, then send warnings to workers through sound and vibrations to remind them to maintain a safe distance.

It has become the first smart-helmet in China, winning second place at the Fifth China Innovation and Entrepreneurship Competition held last year.

So far, the project has attracted several well-known domestic investment institutions, including those from Suzhou Industrial Park, Shanghai Zhangjiang Innopark and Ether Capital.
