World’s First, Smartphone-integrated Radar Module for Cars!

Radarboys is developing a revolutionary, Bluetooth®-enabled radar module, named iC2, that shows drivers the distances and speeds of other cars sharing the road with them. Information is displayed on the user’s Android or iOS-enabled smartphone via a free downloadable app, which triggers both audible and visual alerts when the driver approaches a potentially hazardous situation. This allows the driver time to react and return to safety.


The iC2 device increases the driver’s awareness of his or her surroundings and improves safety, especially at night and in hazardous driving conditions.

Radarboys’ iC2 device records all radar data, distances, speeds and directions, which can help with insurance claims and assist police during accident investigations.

Whether you are commuting to work running errands around town, or on a family road trip, Radarboys iC2 gives you peace of mind and the promise of safer travels on the road.

Product Highlights:

  • Easy, suction-cup mount installation
  • Free, easy-to-use smartphone app (Android/iOS)
  • Stylish colors
  • Great design
  • Use globally

Our motivation and beliefs

Radarboys iC2 is more than a great tech gadget. We believe it will help improve driver safety and save lives. Each year, there are more than five million traffic accidents in the U.S. alone, and more than 30,000 of these incidents involve a fatality.

At Radarboys, we are passionate about creating life-saving technologies that are affordable, easy to use, reliable, and built with the world's best materials and components.

Why we need funds

Today we have developed several a few working prototypes of our iC2 module, but we still need funds to improve some of the firmware before putting the product into mass production.

Proposed Schedule:

  • 1st month – Finalize electronics optimization and prototype testing of the iOS & Andriod phone app,
  • 2nd month – Development/testing of beta versions.
  • 3rd month – Final product testing and certification.
  • 4th month – Begin mass production.
  • 5th month – Delivery of Radarboys iC2 to you, our backers.

The proposed schedule outlined above is set with a reserve, because we do not want to let our backers down or cause unnecessary delays.

We expect to launch Radarboys iC2 into mass production and our backers will be able to get new device much earlier and cheaper than those who will want to buy it in future.
