Helmet-mounted crash sensor detects impact, alerts emergency services

ICEdot Crash Sensor helmet

The Crash Sensor from ICEdot is available in August for $149. via EET.

The Crash Sensor will mount onto any helmet. When paired with the ICEdot app on a smart phone, the system is able to detect motion, changes in forces and impacts.

In the event of critical forces, the device triggers the app over low-energy Bluetooth to sound an alarm and initiate an emergency countdown. Unless the countdown clock is stopped, the app will then notify your emergency contacts and send GPS coordinates of the incident so that appropriate follow up actions can be taken.

  1. Now that is a great idea! I commuted by bike everyday for 12 years and was in some pretty nasty crashes. I’ll definitely recommend this to all my cycling friends.
