If you use a chain tug you should be fine. I did that for a few years before I changed the dropouts on my commuter bike

comment Is there a way to hop up onto a parallel curb?
@andy256 I can definitely get the back wheel off the ground without being clipped in. Or both. I can even do wheely lifts on my lazy bike, much to the amazement of my boss at one stage. Viz, carrying the lifting motion of a wheely through to lift the rear wheel as well. That's how you get most air, but it's harder than it looks.

comment how to find Vehicle (Bike) speed information
@user3828313 try electronics.stackexchange.com. I'm guessing an optointerrupt on the disk rotor would meet your requirements.

@andy256 handlebar-only bunny hops are at least as easy as clipped in ones - look at BMX and trials riders. It just requires a bit of hand pressure up and forward to stick the bike to your feet. But add panniers and that gets (a lot) harder. Hopping sideways is a key skill for trials riding.

@TinKorcim I suspect the most likely failure is your rear wheel not quite clearing the curb, so you'd fall sideways with and tangled up in the bike. Which is going to result in a lot of lost skin as you slide to a halt. Which is why I'd be jumping off the bike and rolling.
