Internet of Things Inc (CVE:ITT) (OTCMKTS:INOTF) announced Wednesday that its subsidiary Weather Telematics Inc has introduced Predictiv RC, an advanced road conditions platform.
Predictiv RC provides an assessment of the risks associated with driving on roads in poor weather conditions.
The technology is geared for autonomous and electric vehicles and the platform allows Weather Telematics to improve the safety of electric vehicles while providing the essential data needed to operate autonomous vehicles in all weather conditions.
“This is a critical solution necessary for the burgeoning autonomous and electric vehicle markets,” Internet of Things said in a statement.
Predictiv RC provides historical, current and predictive road weather conditions (dry, wet, snowy, icy) and weather hazards, including hydroplaning, wind visibility, hail and lightening.
Able to predict conditions six hours in advance on any route, with more than 90% accuracy, Predictive RC allows vehicles to navigate when weather turns foul.
The platform also provides the data needed to accurately assess the battery life of electric vehicles, especially in extreme cold and hot weather.
