The WTX E-Horizon Road Hazard Alert Service is designed to provide a full toolkit for fleet managers and telematics service providers to proactively manage the impact of road weather hazards on fleet logistics.
WTX E-Horizon’s primary function is to reduce risk for drivers and fleet assets by proactively alerting them to potentially road weather hazards and dangerous road conditions, including hydroplaning, black ice, low visibility, wind, hail, and lightning.
WTX E-Horizon integrates with telematics platforms to provide drivers with real-time automated notifications of road hazards to enable more effective journey management. The platform utilizes highly sophisticated machine learning models trained on billions of meteorologically approved sensor driven road miles. Since 2011, the platform has been the mobile road weather backbone to the US National Weather Service.
WTX E-Horizon truly provides drivers and fleet managers with a Sixth Sense by placing a higher level of advanced situational awareness and proactive risk mitigation directly in their hands.
Fleets and dispatchers can access WTX E-Horizon two ways:
Understanding and measuring risk is one thing, but achieving actionable loss prevention requires a set of tools that give drivers the ability to proactively mitigate risk. What’s needed is a system that delivers lower ratings, improved weather tolerant driver scoring and reduced insurance premiums.
While most insurance analytics companies focus on underwriting and claims management, Weather Telematics E-Horizon platform focuses on providing road hazard alerts and notifications for drivers, to help prevent losses by identifying and avoiding risk ahead of time. WTX E-Horizon is a real-time, predictive road risk platform that alerts drivers in advance of hazardous road conditions including hydroplaning, black ice, low visibility, wind, hail, and lightning risks.
These automated alerts are generated using the power of machine learning (AI) along with a unique blend of proprietary data analytics algorithms that fuse over a billion miles of historical road risk indicators to create the foundation for our predictive road risk index.
WTX E-Horizon provides Insurance carriers with an effective tool to help clients achieve lower risk scores for premium optimization by measuring the driver’s accident loss prevention activities.
GPS navigation and embedded routing systems offers tremendous time and operational efficiencies. Weather Telematics adds enhanced safety and risk mitigation to the equation with the WTX E-Horizon dynamic road condition service.
Our unique, AI-based platform displays current road weather conditions as dry, wet, icy, or snowy, with 6-hour predictive capability to help drivers avoid freezing rain, black ice, and other dangerous hazards. This is an enabler for safer route planning and more accurate ETA calculations. Road weather conditions are displayed as color-coded lines, similar to current traffic applications that display traffic density using colored tiles and overlays on street maps.
This predictive platform also takes into account high accident zones affected by terrain, topography, blind spots, shoulder hazards, steep grades and more. This advanced data fusion gives travelers thr tools they need to choose the path of least risk. The WTX E-Horizon Road Condition service is easily integrated with existing routing engines.
Let E-Horizon become your Sixth Sense for road condition awareness.
As the emerging world of connected car and smart city technologies evolve, the transportation industry is about to witness the most significant transformation since the invention of the automobile.
Weather Telematics is the creator of an innovative data fusion and machine learning platform that bridges the gap between connected vehicles and the Internet of Things. Weather Telematics E-Horizon integrates directly into ADAS systems or in-vehicle navigation maps to provide advanced situational awareness of road weather conditions and hazards in proximity to vehicles.
Today, we mentor drivers using high precision real-time road condition analytics to provide road hazard alerts and current/forecast road weather conditions. Our future is focussed on directly mentoring the vehicle by integrating into the vehicle navigation and safety systems for autonomous vehicles to assist navigation in poor weather conditions.
Poor road weather conditions are a direct cause of traffic congestion, accidents, and fatalities in urban centers. Increasingly frequent extreme weather events are a direct cause of more congested and dangerous roadways for both consumer and commercial vehicles.
Weather Telematics provides media companies with high precision enhanced road weather condition maps that enable current / forecast road condition and hazard alerting.

WTX E-Horizon maps also display numerous road weather hazard alerts including hydroplaning risk, black ice, low visibility, wind, hail, and lightning risk to augment existing weather maps to enable safety alert notifications to drivers and audiences.
Weather Telematics’ suite of map-based media tools help travelers choose the safest route - avoiding delays while at the same time reducing congestion, fuel consumption, operating costs and above all, avoiding high-risk accident zones.
