INTELLIGENT CRANIUM HELMETS
Eliminating Your Blind Spots
Intelligent Cranium Helmets LLC (ICH) was started in 2015 with an idea for a helmet which will help save lives and enhance a rider’s experience. Currently motorcycle riders have a 210° blind spot around them, however; ICH has solved this problem by integrating currently available technologies into a motorcycle helmet that alerts and allows the rider to see danger before it’s too late. Further, our custom HW/SW & design enables the rider to leverage existing mobile technology and take advantage of everything their smartphone has to offer.
To be successful, ICH brought together a select handful of experienced US Department of Defense (DoD) Veterans, Development Engineers, and energetic, young talent. The core team has over 50 years of experience in development and acquisition programs, and is dedicated to bringing its exciting new product to market.
ICH is positioned to become a major competitor in the motorcycle/scooter rider safety industry. Enormous helmet markets exist both in the United States and abroad; however, no product currently available or in development combines technological advancements as the ICH patent-pending helmet.
YOU ARE LIMITED
A rider’s view is restricted to roughly a 120 degree Field of view. As a result they are faced with multiple blind spots which may contribute to the numerous motorcycle traumas the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s collected in 2015.
Rear-Stereoscopic Field of View
While similar products don’t provide this key safety element and only produce a maximum of 180 degrees FOV, ICH has stitched together streams from 2 rear-view cameras into one fluid stream; in real-time. By doing so a riders FOV increases to ~240 degrees giving a rider a full true 360 degrees.
Working in tandem with our rear-view cameras is an added layer of safety—our proximity sensors. Receive audible and/or visual alerts when vehicles encroach your safety zone within ~5-10ft; maintaining a higher level of safety at all times.
OUR SAFETY & TECHNOLOGY
ICH Development team has taken the time to really address the issue for riders, and that is eliminating the blind spot. While similar products don’t provide this key safety element and only produce a maximum of 180 degrees FOV, ICH has stitched together streams from 2 rear-view cameras into one fluid stream; in real-time. By doing so a riders FOV increases to 210 degrees.
Receive audible and/or visual alerts when vehicles encroach your safety zone within ~5-10ft; maintaining a higher level of safety at all times.
The interior LED Warning Lights work in tandem with our proximity sensors to provide you with visual alerts of vehicles who may be getting just a little too close for comfort, so that you’re always aware and ready to react.
In the event of a serious accident, ICH is equipping the iC-R with an ESAS that will not only alert emergency contacts, but also alert the nearest emergency services department if the rider is unresponsive after a specified period of time. Every second counts.
ICH is targeting the following safety certs prior to shipment:
We’ve taken a deep look at the HUD environment (looking at things such as cognitive distractions) and have weighed the pros and cons of the different options. Since safety is the reason the iC-R was born, we’ve stripped away the junk and are only showing riders what is absolutely necessary:
- The Rear FOV
- On Demand Pop-up GPS Navigation
Why stop at just 2 cameras? Well we’ve added a 3rd! Not just because, but who wants to mess around with mounts and an action camera that’s adding a weird amount of weight to one section of your helmet. Why not lighten that load and embed it in the helmet along with our 2 other cameras.
Each iC-R model will come with on board storage, but why not throw in a microSD expansion slot? Well we have. Never run out of space whether you’re recording your ride or streaming music playlists.
Let’s face it, Bluetooth+ provides us with a number of useful functions, but it’s been proven that Bluetooth just doesn’t cut it. That’s why we’re integrating our Long Range Rider-to-Rider communications system. With our system riders will be able to:
- Sync your phone and have hands-free calling
- Communicate with other riders within a 2+ mile range, while streaming music simultaneously. Stream music if you choose, but don’t forget you can always play music from your on-board microSD
The ability to perform tasks hands-free is a huge safety concern, and a huge undertaking. So that’s what we’re doing. Not only are we working to provide you with hands-free functionality while wearing your iC-R, we’re personalizing it too with our own artificial intelligence (more to come on that)…
Never worry about being blinded by the sun, or having to carry more than one visor in the event you’re out riding all day and night. Pairing the iC-R with a photochromic visor is just a match made in ride heaven!
Note: the photochromic visor is an add-on option and does not come standard on any iC-R model.
Plan on going for a much longer ride than just the daily commute to work? Yes the iC-R will come with an awesome battery capacity, but we all forget to charge our electronics every now and again right? We’ve taken this into consideration and will be equipping our iC-Rs+ with this awesome feature. Other iC-R models will have the option include this as an add-on. Who wants to be left out right?
Your safety and your health go hand in hand—that’s why we’ve also included a washable respiratory filter to help protect you from dust and other invisible & harmful particulates while you’re traveling from place to place.
We encourage creativity and promote new ideas.
