Weather Telematics has entered into an agreement with the Automotive Parts Manufacturers Association (“APMA”) to showcase its innovative road safety data and predictive weather analytics technology in the APMA’s Demo Zone demonstration vehicles.
The announcement was made by Internet of Things Inc, a strategic investor and operator of emerging technology companies with innovative IoT, AI and Blockchain solutions, as Weather Telematics is its wholly-owned subsidiary.
APMA is Canada’s national association representing OEM producers of parts, equipment, tools, supplies and services for the worldwide automotive industry.
Weather Telematics a Canadian-based, IoT data science company offering road safety data products for industrial, government and consumer markets. The company uses a proprietary vehicle-mounted mobile IoT sensor network and AI machine learning system to generate real-time and predictive road weather conditions, road hazard risk alert notifications and dynamic routing applications. Its platform mitigates weather risk, reduces traffic congestion and makes connected and autonomous navigation safer in all types of road conditions.
The Autonomous Vehicle Innovation Network (AVIN)/APMA Demo Zone project located in Stratford, Ontario, is designed as a showcase for leading Ontario-based companies in connected and autonomous vehicles, including QNX (subsidiary of BlackBerry), Weather Telematics and others. WTX Inc. will be installing its AI/Machine-Learning-based road risk platform in the Demo Zone vehicles to assist drivers with identifying current and predicted road conditions (dry, wet, snowy and icy) and road weather hazards surrounding the vehicle (hydroplaning, low visibility, wind, hail and lightning strikes).
The new APMA Demo Zone “rolling” vehicle demonstration will have the Weather Telematics data and platform integrated with the QNX platform to provide the driver and vehicle with essential safety information to mitigate the risk of weather-related road hazards. The vehicles are scheduled for deployment over the next month.
