Welcome to LIVI!
Traffic accidents are one of the largest public health issues in the world. Motorcycles and scooters in particular have a part in the 1.25 million yearly traffic fatalities.
Accidents are mainly caused by human error and not by a technical failure. (Studies have shown that only 3% are caused by vehicle failure, mostly punctured tires1).

We believe that in order to help drivers of scooters and other vehicles aviod accidents we need to introduce modern technology in scooters for active safety and driver assistance.
In order to have a market impact and drive adoption of the systems in markets where scooters are mostly used, they need to be affordable and come coupled with desirable and convenient features.
