Vehicle Safety Innovations
Bird's world-class, in-house design and engineering team is dedicated to creating, improving, and constantly evolving our products in order to better fit rider's needs.
Smart Sidewalk Protection
Our smart integration will give riders traveling on a sidewalk an audible alert and mobile notification before the vehicle is brought safely and smoothly to a stop by reducing throttle.
Bird has the industry’s only IP68-rated battery—meaning that its electrical enclosure gives it the highest level of protection against dust and water damage out of any other micro-mobility scooter in the world.
Autonomous Emergency Braking
A unique braking system safeguards riders against potential brake failure and ensures they can always bring the vehicle to a stop.
Real-Time Fault Detection
Daily autonomous fault checks and on-vehicle sensory inputs allow us to observe potential vehicle issues in real time.
Community Safety Zones
City prescribed slow-riding or no-riding zones help protect pedestrians by gradually slowing or stopping vehicles. Bird is working with cities to extend our network of geofenced zones.
An increased footboard size on our newest scooters helps to improve rider safety and stability.
Skid Detection uses Bird’s state-of-the-art vehicle diagnostics and sensor processing capabilities to determine if a skid has occurred, which could indicate service needs.
Bird’s best-in-class vehicles are backed by multiple international and standardized certifications and ratings that make them stand out from the competition.
At Bird, we’re committed to helping our riders stay safe. That’s why we’re always developing new features, videos, and tips with rider safety in mind.
