TrafficLand & Exelis Market Advanced Real-Time, Hyperlocal Weather Detection & Monitoring Platform

Exelis Helios™ environmental intelligence platform analyzes images from TrafficLand roadway camera network to detect and track weather conditions at thousands of locations in over 200 U.S. cities

TrafficLand®, the largest authorized aggregator of live traffic video in the United States, and   global aerospace and defense company  Exelis,  are working together to deliver real-time information about hyperlocal weather conditions.

The Helios environmental intelligence platform uses proprietary algorithms that give users the ability to monitor current conditions and detect changes in visibility, precipitation and road surface conditions at a hyperlocal, or street scale. Helios can then inform users of threatening conditions. Content from the Helios platform is available via API or Web interface for integration across platforms.

Exelis brings 45 years of weather intelligence and image science expertise to TrafficLand’s network of more than 15,000 Department of Transportation traffic cameras across the United States.

“Demand for TrafficLand content historically spikes during severe weather events, demonstrating that people want accurate, timely information about weather conditions at roadside cameras on the roads they are traveling,” said Lawrence Nelson, CEO of TrafficLand. “This partnership creates a game-changing weather information platform that will help individuals using in-car and other connected devices, as well as public agencies, media and others make better weather-related decisions.”

“Exelis is applying similar science used for Earth imaging and environmental satellites, which produce weather data for forecasters, to the TrafficLand network of cameras,” said Eric Webster, Exelis Geospatial Systems vice president of weather systems. “Our proprietary algorithms can also provide ground truth to regional predictions.”
