New INRIX Road Weather platform warns drivers of critical weather conditions
The INRIX Road Weather platform gives updated alerts every 15 minutes and also provides information on the roads themselves, including type of precipitation, surface conditions and visibility, among others.
The system has been developed in collaboration with Global Weather Corporation and, according to INRIX, is the first system to use real-time data from connected vehicles to report road conditions and alert other drivers of potentially dangerous situations.
“INRIX has been focused on making driving not only more efficient, but also safer,“ said Bryan Mistele, founder and chief executive officer of INRIX. “Road Weather is another innovative next step that continues our work to use massive amounts of big data and leading-edge technology to make connected cars safer and cities smarter.”
The technology is currently being offered to automakers, mobile application developers and public sector agencies, and will soon be available in the INRIX mobile app.
