A group of professionals with different backgrounds, with the skills and the desire to change the experience of those who practice outdoor sports in the mountains.


Motorialab was born in the Data Analytics labs of the Fondazione Bruno Kessler (FBK) in Trento by a group of people who, over the last 6 years, have been assembling, disassembling and reassembling systems for decision making based on space-time big data.


In a few years, we have developed a strong bond for outdoor, sport and technological innovation. Our experience starts from consulting projects for the development of data collection platforms, web services and software created for clients such as Salewa.

Our first product launched on the market is SAFE, an integrated risk management system for ski area managers.

With SAFE we want to change the approach to rescue and safety on ski slopes, accelerating data collection and digitalization and providing real-time monitoring of safety on ski slopes.


Our aim is to develop digital products, based on real data, useful for the safety of people while they enjoy outdoor sports.

Thanks to our cooperation with the world of research (partnership with FBK), we collaborate with many international companies related to the world of sport, supporting them in the processes of experimentation, quick prototyping and implementation of innovative digital solutions.


The work is as important as the pleasure we take in doing it. We are first of all people who love to create, learn and grow, united around a passion for technology and the outdoors, and that form a team with bonds that go beyond just being colleagues.
