There are numbers of transport service providers which are there on the road to provide the transport services. As the more numbers of vehicles are there on the road so the number of accidents also increases.
To avoid this or in case of such emergency or panic situations, various measures should be adopted to save the lives. One such step is being taken by the most preferred transport service provider uber in the form of Uber Ride Check.
This would help to check the rides on regular basis and with which any of the mishappenings in the rides.
About Uber Ride Check
Through the use of smartphones which are having the feature like that of gyroscope and accelerometer with the feature of GPS, uber could able to detect that whether the vehicle is being moving or stopped at a certain place for longer period or involved into an accident. This would help in having the support from uber in case of any accident or mishappening.
How to use Uber Ride Check?
When a rider is riding then it would activate automatically and in case the rider sticks to any place for a longer period of time then on the smartphone, automatically a pop up will arise asking for Uber Ride Check.
A notification would arise and in that they will ask for the ride check, mostly with the message “possible crash detected. Is everything ok?” After tapping on it, in this it would be asked that, “where you are involved in a crash?”
Then in case the rider is not involved in a crash, then they would press “no” otherwise they need to press the “yes” tap. In this case they would try to contact you but there is also an option of safety toolkit.
In this the user can call 911 for the assistance or can also call uber for safety line. There are some other options also which they choose such as report for a crash, share trip and Insurance hub. As per the necessity user could choose it.
In case the rider had called on 911 for assistance then in that share the exact location when rider does call to 911 where crash had happen. Though the estimated crash location reaches the uber where they could send the help.
This type of message also reaches to the driver. So the same thing the driver needs to do for calling the help.
Does Uber Ride Check gets activated during crash only?
There are many times when due to few irregularities happen during trip, the ride needs to get halt for some time. In that case, the rider, as well as driver, would receive the notification mostly that, “your rides have been stopped for a while.
Is everything ok?”. On clicking on it there would be an option of telling that whether everything is ok or need the safety assistant. So if the ride is stopped due to certain issues then it could be said that everything is ok and ride stopped due to a purpose.
In other cases, they both can call the 911 assistance or uber safety line. In case of crash, they could report the same as well. Through this the rider could add or change the destination as well as share the status of trip.
Uber Ride Check feature would arise in the app only when uber feel there is a possibility of crash or halt for longer times. It is available in some of the locations and gradually this facility is given in other locations as well.
