My BackUp is a wireless electronic system for reducing the number of
road accidents involving two-wheeled vehicles.
Today, there are app. 200 million two-wheeled vehicles worldwide,
with sales rapidly increasing due to parking and traffic problems in
Road accidents involving two-wheeled vehicles are more prone to result
in severe injuries and casualties owing to the high exposure of the rider
to injury and the diminished visibility of these relatively small vehicles.
Our project is a revolutionary safety device, intended for two-wheeled
vehicle riders, which reduces road accidents caused as a result of
inobservance of distance. The device is an additional lighting system,
synchronized with the vehicle’s regular signal and stoplights. The system
significantly improves the visibility of the two-wheeled vehicle rider
on the road.
The system consists of two main components: one is installed inside the
vehicle while the other is on the helmet or the jacket, using specialized
strips. Installation is simple and may be done separately, after purchasing
the vehicle. The two parts of the system communicate using RF or
Installation of the device will allow the transition to safer driving
for passengers of a vehicle that is highly exposed to fatal road
Market and profit potential for the device is enormous, in Israel and
worldwide. The cost of manufacturing is estimated at $15-$20 per
piece, while target price for the end user is $100. This device has
begun trials and regulation in Israel.
