Ride Vision is proud to announce their winning of a CLEPA Innovation Award this year in the category of Safety. Every year CLEPA, the European Association of Automotive Suppliers, invites startups and organizations from across the automotive industry to share their latest innovations and technology. Held in 2021 as a virtual event, over 70 entries were submitted for the award categories of Connectivity and Automation, Cooperation, Environment, and Safety.
This year, Israel-based company Ride Vision’s lifesaving camera system took first place in the CLEPA awards category for safety innovation, thanks to an entry submission from one of their early development partners — Continental. Ride Vision’s Advanced Rider Assistance System (ARAS) functions help to save riders’ lives through the coordination of a camera system, patented collision avoidance algorithm, and specialized main unit (ECU).

This industry-leading collision prevention system helps riders to detect and avoid critical collision threats in their early stages. Riders are alerted to these threats through 2 non-intrusive LED warning lights that are installed onto the motorcycle’s mirrors. The camera system monitors the area around the rider, alerting them to situations like dangerous overtakes and blind-spot threats. In addition to visual signals — Ride Vision can also trigger audio alert cues directly to a rider’s helmet headset. This feature is programmable within the Ride Vision app, which also houses all ride footage and data for the user or fleet manager to easily access.
“We are so honored to provide the two-wheeler world with the resources they need to stay safe out there,” stated Uri Lavi, CEO, and co-founder of Ride Vision. “No rider should have to wonder if they’re going to come home safe after their ride.”
Now more than ever this lifesaving technology is needed for motorcyclists, with distracted driving and collision threats continuing to rise around the world. According to the U.S. federal National Traffic Highway and Safety Administration, motorcyclists are 28 times more likely to be fatally hit than automobiles. In the European Union alone over 275,000 motorcyclists were injured in 2020, and more than 4,000 were killed.

Fortunately, Ride Vision is available for motorcyclists to purchase across multiple markets, with their service areas and regions continuously growing. The Ride Vision system can be retrofitted onto virtually any two-wheeler, and is available for OEM and fleet management bulk applications.
Early tests of Ride Vision with on-road fleets have already yielded impressive results. Recent data has indicated that the use of Ride Vision results in an incredible 60% reduction in potentially fatal collisions, and a 25%+ reduction in the risk of a frontal collision and injury.
Consumers and companies interested in purchasing Ride Vision can visit Ride Vision’s website to be connected to a local retailer, or visit Ride Vision during their 2021 and 2022 event seasons in Israel, Italy, the U.S., and more.
