As more of us take up solo motorcycle ventures technology expands to help us and provide more security when things go wrong such as a fall or collision. The new ICEdot Crash Sensor detects helmet impacts and notifies your emergency contacts. The Crash Sensor is a small device that mounts onto any helmet.
The Crash Sensor helmet is a slim device that mounts as an after market device 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.
Upon impact, the device sends critical data to the app which sounds an alarm and initiates an emergency countdown. Unless the countdown clock is stopped the app will then notify your emergency contacts and send GPS co-ordinates so that appropriate emergency measures can be taken.
Never Ride Alone is the philosophy with ICEdot’s Crash Sensor and App, a comprehensive digital safety platform. The Crash Sensor will mount onto any helmet and when paired with the ICEdot app over low energy bluetooth, the system is able to detect motion, changes in forces and impacts.
The ICEdot App provides automated Push Notifications, sharing your route at the start of an activity, Crash Notifications, alerting emergency contacts if a dangerous head impact is detected, and Emergency ID providing first responders your name, conditions, medications, allergies and emergency contacts. ICEdot is taking personal safety for action sports to a new level. Adventure Responsibly.
The ICEdot Crash Sensor app is available for iPhone 4S and later. An Android version is available for Low Energy Bluetooth enabled devices running 4.3 or later, Samsung phones require 4.4.2. Automated Activity Notifications are only available on IOS until the Lollipop beta period is completed.
ICEdot SMS services are globally accessible with primary numbers in the United States for messages in the Americas, Switzerland for those in Europe, Australia and South Africa.
Based in Oklahoma, ICEdot already offers emergency identification and notification services. The company’s aim targets not only motorcyclists but those who take part in skiing, cycling, back country travel and similar sports.
Though we do believe crashes and mishaps are reduced and most cases avoided by possessing good motorcycle operational skills, ensuring your motorcycle is fit and wearing proper helmet and motorcycle gear – an item such as this allows for that extra bit of peace of mind.
*Note: As was previously communicated to ICEdot subscribers, services have been terminated and the company has closed.
