The Problem

Contradicting weather reports

Weather forecasts from different providers are often contradictory. Which one can you trust?

Weather is perhaps the single largest external swing factor in business performance – responsible for an annual economic impact of nearly half a trillion dollars in the U.S. alone. However, accurate weather prediction is still an open scientific question. Different meteorological models provide different predictions for the same location. In addition to business, weather uncertainty also impacts our everyday lives, from commuting to sports and outdoor activities. This leaves us in an critical predicament: which weather forecast can we trust?

The Service

Tracking the performance of every forecast provider

We have created a service that aggregates and compares third-party forecasts with real-time weather conditions in order to measure forecasting accuracy per location and forecasting provider. Often one forecasting provider performs better than others on specific locations. This information gives you confidence to take the best course of action in your business and everyday life.

The App

Personalized weather forecast

             Weather ex Machina Android app         

The WeatherXM app aggregates forecasts from multiple 3rd party providers and displays the ones for location of interest in one screen, for you to easily identify conflicts or agreement.

In the Premium version of our app, each forecast receives a score based on previous performance for this location. Therefore one can easily identify the most reliable forecast as well as the probability of the forecast actually happening.

In the future, smartphone’s sensors and user feedback will be utilized to crowd-source knowledge on actual weather conditions. Users will be able to report inaccurate published conditions, contributing to the improvement of the services.

Tech

Our broad technological background allows us to combine a number of cutting edge technologies in our solutions. From embedded hardware to Big Data Analytics using Apache Spark with mongoDB and Apache HBASE as well as bigdata/smartcity open source projects like sentilo.iositewhere.org and thingsboard.org. 

A side project of ours is the development of our own open source solid state, maintenance free hardware weather station, adopting a number of innovative approaches in environmental sensing as well as in communications using LoRaWAN wireless technology. Our goal is to create a low-cost, solid state weather sensor that can be deployed in large scale grid topology in order to provide real-time weather radar-like services as well as a plethora of other weather analytics which can be build on top.

To achieve this on a global scale, we are part of TheThingsNetwork deploying LoRaWAN gateways in our region, being part of the largest global LoRaWAN network (4k active gateways). We were the firs to deploy such infrastructure in Greece (Athens TTN initiators) and the first to utilize it commercial in Athens airport for environmental monitoring.

We recently also won the 2018 hackaday design challenge prize with our unique weather station, find out more at https://hackaday.com/2018/05/17/the-solid-state-weather-station/
