Apply AI insights to help optimize operations, protect workers and improve efficiency

Weather can cause a variety of problems for ground transportation companies. If drivers aren’t prepared, harsh conditions such as icy roads, poor visibility and violent storms may lead to delays, accidents or serious injuries.

Applying AI and analytics to weather and traffic data helps transportation companies and their drivers make better decisions about impending conditions. Customizable mobile alerts help employees and customers avoid danger while staying on schedule.

Driver Alerts: Your headlights into hazardous weather conditions

Drivers can see only as far as their headlights can reach. Hazardous conditions may sneak up on them and, potentially, lead to accidents and delays. But what if you could keep drivers informed of impending weather and road conditions up to 15 minutes ahead of time? They would be able to take avoidance measures and minimize negative impacts.
