Uber is dedicated to keeping people safe on the road. The Safety & Insurance Engineering team sits at the core of Uber’s business and is working to redefine what it takes to be safe on the roads at global scale. Our technology enables us to focus on rider safety before, during, and after every trip.
What are we working on?
We’re using real-time telematics and motion sensing technologies along with multi-faceted machine learning algorithms and user-facing mobile products to reduce and prevent unsafe driving and behavior on the Uber platform. The team is building low-latency data streaming infrastructure that ingests terabytes of data daily before applying statistical modeling and signal processing algorithm, NLP auditing as well as facial biometrics recognition solutions. Our work touches all parts of the Uber experience from dispatch to on-trip and post-trip, as well as Uber's entire ecosystem ranging from our rides business to other newer Uber marketplaces, and ventures.
