RideSafeUM was born in 2022 to make micromobility safer, encourage increased ridership of what have become key modes for the future of our mobility systems, and collect data on micromobility trips and crashes as a great source to nurture decision-making.

Using innovative technology, RideSafeUM brings micromobility safety benefits to users, public authorities, shared service operators and last-mile logistic companies using micromobility modes. This technology is based on artificial intelligence, proactively preventing micromobility incompliances and accidents, and gathers data for wider learning, policy-making and management purposes.

The RideSafeUM solution is based on the integration of computer-vision software, with support from cameras, GPS and accelerometers supported either by users’ smartphones or through integrated equipment in the vehicle hardware. In addition, a dashboard or central system enables authorities or last-mile logistic operators to implement regulations or restrictions and to identify and dynamically manage micromobility safety issues.

Real-time information of regulations is displayed to the user on their phones as they ride via the app or the operator’s front-end, depending on the type of vehicle they are riding, the automatically detected infrastructure type, and the geofenced restrictions introduced in the dashboard. Anonymised data of incompliances is collected and sent to the dashboard, where statistics are built up. Additionally, alerts are sent to the dashboard if an accident occurs, using a black-box function.

Anonymised data on incompliances and accidents helps to build informed decisions about traffic management regulations, the use of public space and internal operational decisions in case of private operators.


Making micromobility safer, encouraging increased ridership of key modes for the future of our mobility systems and collecting micromobility data to nurture decision-making.

Main Objective

Improve road safety, reduce micromobility accidents and produce real-time data for cities to make informed decisions on mobility management and the use of public space.


An operational dashboard comprising a software platform that collects data from micromobility users for analysis and management purposes, and the associated phone app.
