07 Sep Realsafe Technologies: Motorcycle App With Built-in Crash Detection Technology
Founder/CEO: Zoe Farrington
While riding a motorcylce can be a freeing and exhilarating experience, it’s a risky one at that. As a motorcyclist your chance of having a road accident is both more likely and potentially life threatening. In 2013 alone, there were 1.25 million road traffic deaths globally (Source: World Health Organisation) and almost half of these deaths on the world’s roads are among those with the least protection – motorcyclists, cyclists and pedestrians.
London-based company Realsafe Technologies is on a mission to change just that by reducing the number of motorcycle casualties on Britain’s roads. The company develops applications to help keep motorcycles connected and safe in their hour of need. Their introductory app – REALRIDER®– is an industry-first and the only 999-certified crash detection app for motorcyclists on the UK market. The award-winning app can detect whether a rider is on the move or has crashed and immediately notifies the NHS (UK Emergency Services), who can then send an ambulance to the rider’s last known location. How is this made possible. The REALRIDER® app seamlessly integrates into British Telecom’s telematics system ensuring alerts are treated as any other emergency call following the same system and protocols.
Why we love Realsafe Technologies: There is no other app available on the market that links directly to the UK Emergency Services connecting you to the nearest ambulance service when you need it the most. Need we say more!
