Micromobility operator Helbiz is releasing its AI-powered HelmetChecker tool to help operators meet compliance requirements and open up a new revenue stream for Helbiz.

HelmetChecker uses AI and computer vision to verify whether a rider is wearing a helmet and has the strap correctly secured. Micromobility operators can use this feature to stop a vehicle from unlocking if the user is not wearing a helmet, or to provide incentives to riders who use them in areas where helmets are not mandatory.

Most shared micromobility operators encourage users to wear a helmet to significantly reduce the risk of serious head injuries in the event of a fall

The helmet verification technology has already been piloted within the Helbiz app following its launch in December 2021.

Salvatore Palella, CEO of Helbiz said:

The HelmetChecker has been a game changer for Helbiz and the value we can bring to cities. With 99.7% accuracy, this technology can help other micro-mobility vendors remain compliant and improve rider safety, while bringing a new revenue stream for Helbiz.

Micromobility operators will not require a software development kit or assistance from AI engineers to implement the technology. Instead, an image is simply passed through the HelmetChecker API and a JSON response is read.

The product will be available on a monthly subscription fee and a per-API-call fee per image plan.
