Our Team


Invest in The Future of Rider Safety

Intelligent Cranium Helmets (ICH) is a tech company positioned to truly disrupt & usher in a new era of advanced motorcycle safety with blind spot elimination & Ai. 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 (including a number of ICH team members) have a huge blind spot around them that has left them vulnerable and susceptible to life threatening accidents, however; ICH has solved this problem by integrating custom and currently available technologies into a motorcycle helmet that alerts and allows the rider to see danger before it’s too late.

Further, our patented technology and design enables the rider to leverage custom and existing mobile technology to take advantage of everything their smartphone has to offer.

The Details of Our Journey

The Problem - Blindspots

The Solution

iC-Rs+ 270 Degree Dual Rear Camera Blind-spot Elimination w/Proximity Sensors

Why ICH vs Others?

In The News

TheRideAdvice: “The iC-R (Intelligent Cranium) helmet packs a lot of the same technology that these other products do, but what we like most about it is that it actually seems to make an effort to make these features part of improving rider safety instead of just being there for the sake of it.”

Gizmag/New Atlas: “Intelligent Cranium’s iC-R helmet is the most ambitious high-tech helmet project we’ve seen…”

Motorcycle Safety Stats

  • In 2017 there were 5,172 motorcyclists killed in motor vehicle traffic crashes
  • Of the 5,172 motorcyclists killed in traffic crashes, 94 percent (4,885) were riders and 6 percent (287) were passengers
  • In States without universal helmet laws, 57 percent of motorcyclists killed in 2017 were not wearing helmets, as compared to 8 percent in States with universal helmet laws

The Safety of the iC-R (HW & SW) - The Physical Build

Carbon Fiber + Kevlar Superior Protection

Designed to meet the safety standards of today and the future

Each iC-R model is designed and built with care and the utmost safety in mind. For the physical build; we're securing each helmet in Carbon Fiber & Kevlar for the ultimate in durability. Taking safety even further, we're pushing the limits for: DOT, SNELL, and ECE 22.05 certifications prior to shipping. Oh...there's one other one, but we're saving that as a big surprise once obtained.

Note: The iC-R will initially be produced overseas due to time and cost, but the HW assembly/functional testing/QA of our helmets will be completed here in the U.S.

THE HARDWARE

Almost every motorcycle rider has had at least ONE close encounter while riding, where a vehicle almost (or in some case did) blind side them because neither the rider nor the driver of the vehicle saw each other.

The core of our helmets hardware is centered around safety. The iC-R lineup is unmatched in features and safety, with critical safety features like:

  • Dual rear-view cameras that ELIMINATE BLINDSPOTS and provide a 270 degree blind spot FOV; while similar products don't provide this key safety element and only produce a maximum of 180 degrees FOV
  • Single 180 degree rear time-of-flight (TOF) proximity/sonar sensor that provide a visual (via the HUD) and audible (optional & can be disabled) alert of hazards within 5-15ft
  • Ultra-bright rear LED helmet lights that make you nearly impossible to miss to drivers on the road at night/low light settings
  • GPS Helmet Tracker - Never lose track of where you helmet is with our "Find My Helmet" feature in our companion app
  • Auto Tinting Visor - Designed so riders never have to take their hands off their bikes; see clearly all the time
  • Internal Speakers - We've really looked at the placement of our internal speakers as much as the sound. Instead of the uncomfortable feeling of wireless buds or speakers that constantly push up against your ears in an already very snug fitting helmet; we've recessed our speakers a little to take care of that. Now you can enjoy that immersive sound for longer rides.
  • Heads-up Display HW - A 1280x720 resolution and 40 degree FOV waveguide projection module fixed to the interior portion of the helmet, projects the rear-view camera feed onto our HUD as an overlay on the road ahead. Our HUD is able to be easily removed and stored away if desired.

THE SOFTWARE

[HEADS-UP DISPLAY SOFTWARE] - With our overall software, but specifically dealing with our Heads-up Dispaly (HUD); we've taken a different and what we feel to be a much safer approach. The iC-R is meant to provide you safety first, and an incredible experience. What you see in the above GIF is where we started, but our new approach to what you see on our HUD is simply to show you only the information that truly matters. We're now limiting the information to only the: rear camera FOV, GPS Navigation, unobtrusive proximity alerts, and visual confirmation when you are/aren't recording your ride; which will be shown in a future updates.

[EMERGENCY SERVICES ALERT SYSTEM (ESAS)] - In the event of an accident, our ESAS will alert not only emergency contacts but the nearest Emergency Services (First Responders) if the rider is unresponsive within 5-20 seconds.

[VOICE RECOGNITION/COMMAND] - 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.

[BLUETOOTH W/RIDER-TO-RIDER COMMUNICATION] - Connecting riders with one or many ride buddies via voice activation; on demand. Now providing you with a stronger, more stable connection via Bluetooth Mesh Network.

[FRONT ACTION CAMERA] - With a 4k@60FPS camera riders can capture, share, and live stream their ride and anything in their FOV; in HD with smooth and boundary leveling image stabilization. Designed to be embedded and replace the use of other helmet mounted action cameras; making the rider helmet that much lighter and integrated. 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; as well as negatively changing the natural aerodynamics of your helmet as you ride?

[RESPIRATORY FILTER] - 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, allergens, odors, and other invisible & harmful particulates while you're traveling from place to place.

[MODULAR HARDWARE] - The majority of the iC-R's components will be modular, and able to be replaced without the need to replace the entire helmet. This move makes the iC-R even more unique, useful, affordable, and really sets us apart from our competitors. With this in our design, we look to create a number of jobs within the U.S.; further reducing the repair/replacement timeline (if needed).

The Team & Who Supports Our Success

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, over 40 years in riding experience, and is 100% dedicated to bringing this exciting new product to market.

With a relationship that had already been fostered, at the conclusion of our successful Kickstarter campaign our leadership team sealed a partnership with Viaanix. Viaanix is a full service IoT firm with a true understanding and love for product development and services. The organization is a team of innovative engineers and management specialists with a combined experience of more than 200 years. It is a place where good ideas are transformed into great products and great services, that leads to social and economic empowerment. Whether it is database development, embedded engineering, software development, Internet of Things (IoT), archival digitalization or website development, Viaanix thrives on challenges that call for creative thinking and technical innovation.

Since our inception we've had numerous think-tank sessions, revisions, and alterations within our design to ensure that we develop a product that will:

  • Be safe above all
  • Provide comfort that exceeds expectations
  • Give riders access to the most useful and best hands-free technology
  • Be revolutionary, yet affordable and adaptable

We are proud of what has been accomplished thus far, with the resources available. We are here ready to see this product through to completion, bring it market and into the hands of all riders. With your additional support, we can push the boundaries of what some thought not to be possible. With your support financially and through spreading the word, paired with our years of developmental expertise and unwavering commitment; success is inevitable.

Risks and challenges

In any start-up there will be challenges and obstacles to overcome. Some financial, operational, and challenges within ones organization; all of which are unforeseen. The key to succeeding is through perseverance and thinking outside of the box.

Though ICH is not a new company starting our company in 2015, there are many good things about where we are and not being a brand new company; such as:

  • We've already gone through the big hurdles of a new organization in finding the right talent and colleagues to see this product through to the end.
  • We've dealt with development companies who's business to business ethics are not where they should be.
  • We've navigated through to the right developmental partnerships needed to take the iC-R from concept, to production, and into all rider's hands.

ICH has endured most of the challenges that cause start-up company's to give up and close down. Since our inception, we have minimized any future risks by:

  • Ensuring our core team is solid and has the proper credentials and expertise to get the job done.
  • Critically thought through every part of the design of the iC-R, its features, and affordable pricing so that all can be safe while riding.
  • Aligning ourselves with the proper developmental and manufacturing partnerships to help produce the right product, and on time.

Realistically, no one can predict every possible issue that may arise within a development such as this. What we have learned through years of experience is to plan and prepare for the worst possible issues; which is what we have done. With your support and trust in the integrity of Intelligent Cranium Helmets, ALL will enjoy the success of this development and the quality of the product that will come from it. Our backers have our sincere commitment that we will provide:

  • regular and timely updates
  • complete responsiveness to inquiries
  • our promise and dedication to deliver this product

Environmental commitments

Long-lasting design

We've designed this product to be durable in its Carbon Fiber + Kevlar material makeup, and through the modularity/ease of hardware replacement. ICH also has a plan in place to increase the life-span of our helmets to be able to be used longer than the standard 3-5 years.

Sustainable Distribution

ICH has a plan in place to maintain sustainability; to include a partnership with reputable and capable production company/facility with over 18 years of experience and success in producing like products.

As a company, we hold strong to our values of essentially just doing good business. Once we meet (prayerfully exceed) our campaign funding goal, we will meet our initial production plans. Prior to launching we ironed everything surrounding production out so that we went into this campaign knowing that we would succeed upon successful funding. We're here for the long haul. We sincerely appreciate the support of our current and future fans, and we can't wait to bring forth the first TRULY smart and situational awareness smart helmet.
