        Ride Vision launches AI-driven motorcycle safety tech

        One alert makes sure riders maintain a safe distance from the vehicle in front
        by John Paulo Aguilera Nov 17, 2020

        Collision-aversion technology provider Ride Vision recently introduced its artificial intelligence-based (AI) alert system for motorcycles to increase rider awareness and cut down on accidents.

        Basically, the safety technology utilizes AI and image recognition to assist riders in real-time decision making via a human-machine warning interface and predictive vision algorithms. Making this possible are two wide-angle cameras (front and rear), alert indicators situated in the mirrors, and a main computing unit that stores the algorithms.

        According to Ride Vision, the COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in people looking at motorcycles and other motorized two-wheeled vehicles as an alternative to public transport. Sales in Europe, for example, have risen by 30% on average. “Ultimately, more riders means more potential accidents,” the company explained.

        The system promises 360-enhanced safety with forward collision, distance-keeping, blind spot, and dangerous overtake alerts. It also records rider data like total distance, total alerts, and maximum speed. Additional features include an emergency-call system after an accident, as well as forward-side collision and rear collision alerts.

        The Israeli startup has raised a total of $10 million in funding, led by investment platform OurCrowd.

        “As motorcycle enthusiasts, we at Ride Vision are excited at the prospect of our international launch and our partnership with Continental,” Ride Vision CEO and co-founder Uri Lavi said. “This moment is a major milestone, as we stride toward our dream of empowering bikers to feel truly safe while they enjoy the ride.”
