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 about 80% of its production from its headquarters in Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium. Are you reading to us from Helsinki or Noumea? It doesn’t matter. You want to detect bicycles, pedestrians or vehicles? At Icoms Detections you will find the detector that suits you.

Why detect in the first place?


Would you like to know how much bicycle paths are used in your municipality? Moderate speed around schools? Reduce the energy consumption generated by public lighting by lighting where you want and only when necessary?  Regulating traffic lights according to traffic without starting 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/what to detect?


One of the strengths of radar technology is its ability to measure the speed of any moving object, regardless of light or heat conditions.  Vulnerable user or truck with trailer, no matter: you will be detected.

Vehicle Detection Systems

Motorised vehicles

  • Traffic light control
  • Queue prediction
  • Traffic measurement: counting, speed measurement, classification
  • Speed alert: educational radars, sensors for PMV activation...
Bicycle Detection At Traffic Signals


  • Bicycle counts on bicycle paths
  • Dedicated traffic light control
  • Alert for motorists on bicycle crossing
  • Activation of public lighting on the presence of cyclists


Pedestrian Crossing Detection


  • Traffic light control: adaptive pedestrian green
  • Activation of public lighting on pedestrian presence
  • Pedestrian crossing alert for motorists


Easy to install

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