To help, a startup called Cosmo Connected is working on a smart light that clips onto the back of your helmet. Eight LEDs — four red, four yellow — are positioned in an oval shape.

Here, you can trigger a flashing "emergency alert" or convey left and right signals by mashing the screen or pressing the company's optional, handlebar-mounted remote control.
