    • If Ridar were to partner with companies already in the crash detection/emergency messaging space then, yes, we could incorporate that technology into our mobile solution. That is certainly an option.

    • For the driver, we will be working with Automobile Insurers to provide a premium discount to those subscribers who download the Ridar app through the insurer's portal and allow this technology to run in the background on their smartphone when driving. By obtaining this discount, the subscriber would need to allow their information to be shared back to their Insurer. This data would also contribute to UBI (usage-based insurance) where several elements are obtained from drivers to generate a score which, in turn, determines one's insurance costs.

      Other means of getting Ridar into the driver's seat is to work with Telcos (cellular carriers), Automobile OEMs and Tier 1 Suppliers to the automotive segment to integrate the Ridar solution into the cockpit.

      Usage-based insurance for drivers makes a lot of sense as an incentive. Is this something you are working on or planning in the future?

    • It is certainly something that could be used as one of the many elements that help score one's driving and adjust their insurance accordingly.

      Ridar Systems is in discussions with automobile insurers as we estimate that there is approximately $41B paid out by insurers each year in the U.S. for motorcycle ($16B) and bicycle ($25B) accidents.

      Not only could we prevent numerous accidents resulting in injury & death but insurers could easily incentivize their subscribers by saving money in the process.

      All of this would, in turn, provide for safer roads for all involved.

    • There's really nothing that can prevent Google or Waze maps from adding such functionally. We would hope that we could collaborate with them in such an effort.

    • Our business model is to license our mobile solution to Automobile Insurers, Telcos, Automobile OEMs and Tier 1 Suppliers--those groups who would benefit most by preventing such accidents and saving lives & saving money.

    • Technically, yes. As ridar currently looks 360 degrees around a driver, the technology would need to be developed to look directly ahead of the driver while geofencing the sidewalks and providing a faster notification to the driver (~1 second).

    • Hey Drue! The best way that Ridar Systems can get more support is to help us conduct some mini pilots where we can get end-users testing the system and provide us with feedback. This can consist of small groups testing with riders (cyclists, motorcyclists, etc) and drivers who also have the app running. This would help us better develop the system and gather additional data on usage. Reach out to us if you need assistance coordinating such an effort!

    • The current app serves both the 2-wheel and 4-wheel--simply select which you are using the app for.

      As this is an MVP (minimal viable product), future iterations will include auto-start with the ability to detect driver (4-wheels) or rider (motorcycle, bicycle, scooter).

      We will certainly do a thread in the Vendor's Forum on ADVRider to keep all updated on our progress!

    • It is currently available in the US & Canada through the App Store & Google Play. It is FREE and is an MVP version (minimally-viable product/Beta). As posted in the ADVRider Forum, this is a manually-started version for which we are looking for testers and feedback
