TORONTO, Sept. 05, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Internet of Things Inc. (TSX VENTURE: ITT; OTC: INOFT; FRANKFURT: 7IT) (“IoT Inc.” or the “Company”) a strategic investor and operator of emerging technology companies with innovative IoT, AI and Blockchain solutions, is pleased to announce that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Weather Telematics Inc. (“WTX Inc.” or “Weather Telematics”), has been granted a patent from the European Patent Office for the mobile collection, analysis, and processing of meteorological data, originally filed in 2015.
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. Weather Telematics uses an AI system, a proprietary mobile sensor network, and a data fusion platform to generate its information. WTX Inc. has developed a unique set of meteorological data (based on hundreds of millions of miles of road weather data) that allows it to make real-time hyper-local road condition predictions.
“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,” said Robert Moran, CEO of Weather Telematics. “All of our sensor technology has been approved by the World Meteorological Association 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.”
