In June 2016, two of the founders were on a motorcycle and one of them has left the road. Fortunately, he got away without any serious injury. But not all motorcyclists have that chance. A few days after the incident, a motorcyclist was found dead several hours after his accident. Following these incidents, the co-founders put their technological knowledge to the benefit of road safety and decided to create an automated incident management system for motor vehicles. Our system won the Coup de Coeur award from the professors and students of the École de Technologie Supérieure in Montreal (ÉTS). We are currently part of the Centech Business Incubator Propulsion program after completing the Business Accelerator program in the same incubator.
RideMetry plans to revolutionize the interventions of emergency services during road accidents and save lives. The goal is to design and market standalone incident management systems that will also act as an anti-theft system. Our efforts are currently focused on the recreational vehicle market as it represents the market with the highest level of accident risk. The expertise acquired with this market will allow us to extend our operations in the market of road, maritime and air vehicles.
With the data collected by our module, placed permanently in the vehicle, and our mobile application, we have a virtually infinite number of applications that can be added to existing services. By working closely with our customers, it will be possible to offer them a multitude of services adapted to their needs.
