Mining is a very dangerous job, with a large number of miners dying from mining accidents every year around the world. We must make some designs and changes to increase the survival rate of miners. It is a modular design. The helmet is made up of six parts, which includes various aspects, such as lighting, food storage, recording, communication, filtering, psychological comfort and so on. It is believed that the problems will be greatly resolved when miners were trapped. Through this kind of design, the survival rate of trapped miners would be greatly improved.
