Weather Telematics, a subsidiary of technology development firm Internet of Things Inc., has been granted a patent from the European Patent Office (originally filed in 2015) for the mobile collection, analysis and processing of meteorological data.
Weather Telematics uses an AI system, a proprietary mobile sensor network and a data fusion platform to generate its information. This provides the platform with a unique meteorological dataset (based on hundreds of millions of miles of road weather data) that enables it to make real-time hyper-local road condition predictions.
The patent of Weather Telematics’ existing hardware and software solutions enables the collection of granular data, in addition to providing the ability to license and protect its technology.
Robert Moran, CEO of Weather Telematics, said, “We are very satisfied with the scope of the patent including its coverage of dynamic calibration and the processing aspects of meteorological data, which are part of the large spectrum of targeted mobile applications.
“The ability to collect, analyze and process data, in real time, from a moving device, with scientific integrity is novel and unprecedented, especially the ability to collect ambient and humidity readings while simultaneously processing dew point.
“All of our sensor technology has been approved by the WMA and meets the rigorous standards to achieve the collection of scientifically approved road weather data and atmospheric conditions. To have been granted this patent in the market of the leading global autonomous vehicle manufacturers is a huge testament to the platform that we developed and is a significant milestone for the company.”
