Lytx expands AI-powered geospatial solutions

Lytx® Inc. has announced the rollout of its Weather Hazard Alerts, available to all clients as a project within the Lytx Lab tab in their accounts. Weather Hazard Alerts allow fleet managers the option to get notifications based on geospatial criteria and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) weather data to facilitate real-time decision making for safer and more efficient driving.

According to the U.S. Federal Highway Administration, of the roughly 5.8 million vehicle crashes each year, approximately 21% are related to adverse weather, which includes rain, sleet, snow, fog, wind, and blowing debris. The new Weather Hazard Alerts overlays NOAA weather warnings (including snow, thunderstorms, floods, tornados, and more) onto fleet maps, allowing fleet managers to set alerts based on specific geographic, timeframe, and weather criteria and be notified as weather conditions become more severe in that particular region.

Dubai Silicon Oasis (DSO), the specialised economic zone for innovation and knowledge and member of the Dubai Integrated Economic Zones Authority (DIEZ), hosted a three-week long Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) drone delivery trials conducted by Jeebly LLC and Skye Air Mobility from India.

The testing conducted in cooperation with the Dubai Future Foundation, the Dubai Civil Aviation Authority and Dubai Silicon Oasis, took place at the Dubai Experimental Zone in DSO. The Zone serves as a real-world testbed for the development, evaluation and demonstration of robotics and autonomous systems. It was established as part of the Dubai Program to Enable Drone Transportation launched in November 2021.
