Icoms , more than 25 years experience ...

The first Icoms radars were created in Louvain-la-Neuve in 1993. The company has since evolved to become a subsidiary of IRD Inc., an international group based in Canada, providing products and systems for highway traffic management and more generally for the global ITS market. Icoms’ commitments have not changed: innovation, ergonomics, reliability, proximity, flexibility.

ITS Traffic Control

Internationally compatible products

In order to improve mobility and enhance safety on roads, Icoms Detections has been designing and manufacturing sensors for road traffic management based on microwave technology since 1993, meeting the needs of intelligent transport systems (ITS). Since July 2017, the company has been the “radar” development hub of International Road Dynamics Inc. based in Saskatoon, Canada.

Icoms Detections exports 75% of its production and is represented worldwide. If you wish to detect cyclists, pedestrians or vehicles, you will find the sensor that suits you at Icoms Detections.

Why detect in the first place?

 

Would you like to know more about how and when the bicycle paths in your municipality are used? Do you want to moderate the speed of vehicles around schools or to reduce the energy consumption of public lighting by applying dynamic lighting?  Or would you like to regulate traffic lights dynamically without civil engineering works?  These are just some of the applications for which Icoms Detections offers reliable, non-intrusive detection systems that operate in all weather conditions.

Who and what to detect?

 

One of the strengths of radar technology is its ability to measure the speed of any moving object, regardless of the light or temperature conditions. Cyclists, pedestrians, cars or trucks, our radars detect with accuracy.

Vehicle Detection Systems

Motorised vehicles

  • Traffic light control
  • Queue prediction
  • Traffic measurement: counting, speed measurement, classification
  • Speed alert: speed signs, sensors for VMS activation
Bicycle Detection At Traffic Signals

Bikes

  • Bicycle count on bicycle paths
  • Dedicated traffic light control
  • Alert for motorists on bicycle crossing
  • Activation of public lighting

 

Pedestrian Crossing Detection

Pedestrians

  • Traffic light control: adaptive green for pedestrians
  • Activation of public lighting
  • Pedestrian crossing alert

 

Easy to install

The objective of our R&D department is to facilitate your task, by delivering powerful and simple radars to use. Forget complex software and demanding field measurements: you will install Icoms radars comfortably at the roadside, safely and very easily.
