Our weather data improves driver safety and the performance of connected and autonomous vehicles.

Assisted and Autonomous Driving

Xweather provides precision road weather for developing and enabling assisted and automated driving. Our end-to-end offering includes everything from predictive data-as-a-service to hardware for ground-truth observations of road surface conditions. We support ADAS & AD technology through its development lifecycle from early validation, through performance testing, and on to production.

Increase system availability.

Advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and autonomous driving (AD) require accurate information about the road surface state and driving conditions. Reliable weather data increases the availability of AD and ADAS functionality in all environments.

Real-time data and predictive information about driving conditions support optimal route planning. For example, road weather technology can help avoid congestion caused by disruptive weather or indicate routes that are suitable for highway autopilot.

We work with the automotive industry to extend the weather-specific design domain of vehicle systems. Our real-time and predictive data helps developers test system performance in challenging conditions.

Improve safety and performance.

Onboard vehicle sensors have a limited ability to detect changing weather and road conditions. A sensor’s range, ability to detect road state, and performance in rain, snow, or fog can cause potential safety risks for assisted and autonomous driving.

Xweather's road weather API delivers accurate road surface condition data to support safer assisted driving. The service acts as a preemptive virtual sensor to help ensure vehicle systems' safe and efficient operation in changing weather conditions.

The road weather dataset comprehensively assesses road surface states, including predictive information about segments with low friction, a risk of aquaplaning, or icy conditions.

Develop driver trust and passenger comfort.

Comfort is a notable factor in building customer trust and acceptance of autonomous vehicle technology. As assisted and autonomous driving technology evolves, it is increasingly important to make drivers and passengers feel comfortable.

Predictive road weather insights minimize unwanted events like sudden braking or the disengagement of an autonomous driving system due to unexpected changes in road conditions.

This ultimately increases driver and passenger comfort and demand for new autonomous technology. These insights will aid in the transition from manual driving to a safer, less congested, and more efficient future of mobility.

Air Quality

Display air quality data on infotainment screens, optimize cabin air filtering, and recommend switching hybrid vehicles to electrical drive in polluted areas.

Electrical drive

Weather and temperature play a major role in determining the real-world performance and range of battery systems in electric vehicles compared with official manufacturers’ figures.

Vehicle sensors

Rain, snow, and poor visibility hinder sensor perception, potentially making it impossible for an autonomous vehicle to operate.
