How It Works


Ridar runs in the background and verbally notifies the driver when a rider is approximately 5 seconds from that driver’s location. Depending upon how the technology has been registered by the rider, the driver will receive the following notification: “Bicycle Ahead”, “Motorcycle to the Right”, “Bicycles to the Left”, etc.


Ridar acts as a beacon to all drivers. It warns drivers of potential or imminent collisions keeping riders safe by eliminating blind spots and unnoticed riders. It can also map routes and give crucial ride data. When traveling in groups, Ridar Systems will notify the driver when there are more than one bicycle or motorcycle traveling together.
