About the Company
At RightHook, we believe there is an opportunity like never before to expand access to safe, enjoyable mobility. Whether you are inside or outside of a vehicle, absorbing a public space or traveling through it, as technology advances, your safety, security, and privacy should be continuously improving. Instead, over the last several years we have only seen road fatalities increase, and convenience features masquerading as safety features pass the buck to an untrained, misinformed public. RightHook’s vision is a world where safety in mobility is a given, not a competition.
RightHook is helping companies bring safer robotic and AI systems to market faster and with more confidence. From rapid prototyping to large-scale, we are excited to help our customers build systems that have never been built before. The journey to safe roads will be a long one; let’s all work together to get there efficiently and with the public’s rightly-earned trust.
