Baron has announced Baron Weather API for Fleet, a range of quality-controlled weather data that can be integrated into network fleet platforms. According to the company, the Baron Weather API can help reduce the costs of freight industry weather-related delays, and is ideal for fleet management tracking platforms, mobile driver applications and transportation management systems for pre-planning.
Technologies available in the API include real-time and forecast road conditions that identify dangerous roads before the delays begin; current road conditions weather to help track conditions experienced by fleet vehicles in real time; and Baron Storm Tracking, which provides storm arrival and location details. Other available data features include forecast precipitation, winds, snowfall, and temperatures. This information is continually tracked over the next 60 hour period to show the potential impact on fleet operations and enable customers to plan before disruptions begin, the company explained.
