ABOUT US

RideSafeUM

RideSafeUM is an initiative co-funded by EIT Urban Mobility that will bring micromobility safety benefits to users, public authorities and operators through the use of innovative technology. This initiative will proactively prevent riding incompliances, provide smooth reaction in case of accidents and gather data for wider learning, policy-making and management purposes. The project is born in response to the need to make micromobility safer and encourage increased ridership of what have become key modes for the future of our mobility systems.

PILOT TEST

The RideSafeUM solution will be based on the integration of computer-vision software, with camera, GPS and an accelerometer. This technology will be either supported by users’ smartphones or through external equipment. Versatility being one of the core values of RideSafeUM, it will be adaptable to both privately-owned vehicles and shared mobility assets. In addition, a city dashboard will enable authorities to identify and dynamically manage micromobility safety issues.

“The system will work on a bi-lateral communication basis. Real-time digital information (via an app or the operator’s front-end) of regulations will be displayed to the user. At the same time, anonymised alerts will be sent to the authorities if an incompliance accident occurs, using a black-box function.”
