HELIOS®

Traditional weather forecasting predicts what will likely happen in the atmosphere, often missing events on the ground that are influenced by the localized nature of weather. Helios weather analytics bridge that gap with fast and accurate local ground weather intelligence to enable real-time decision making for organizations that rely on location-specific weather information to inform, react, and protect.

Awareness

IMPROVE SITUATIONAL AWARENESS


Helios improves street-level situational awareness and short-term weather forecasting by validating real-time ground conditions day and night.

Access Real-time
Analytics

ACCESS REAL-TIME ANALYTICS


Helios provides immediate access to weather condition analytics from an aggregated network of nearly 40,000 traffic and surveillance cameras.

Detect Ground
Conditions Accurately

DETECT GROUND CONDITIONS ACCURATELY


Helios delivers 95% weather detection accuracy capturing hyperlocal extremes and short-lived severe events not detected by traditional methods

Helios scalable cloud analytics services leverage a growing network of existing cameras to process imagery in real time using machine learning to instantaneously identify and classify changes in ground weather conditions. With 95% weather detection accuracy, Helios® creates 24/7 alerts for phenomena such as road snow, road ice, wet roads, poor visibility, and precipitation.

Road Wetness Analytic

Helios Road Wetness Analytic provides confirmation of precipitation affecting road or pavement conditions and notifies users of wet or dry pavement and potentially dangerous areas during a storm event.

Road Snow Analytic

Helios Road Snow Analytic provides visual confirmation of snow impacting road or pavement conditions, identifying three specific road snow conditions: no snow, partially covered, and totally covered.

Road Ice Analytic

Helios Road Ice Analytic provides warning for road icing conditions by combining information about precipitation on the ground, falling precipitation, fog, and road temperature.

* Helios is adding traffic congestion detection to its suite of analytics to allow users to correlate mobility with road weather conditions.

Visibility Analytic

Helios Visibility Analytic alerts users of real-time fog formation, dissipation, and overall poor visibility conditions caused by fast-moving, localized fog, heavy rain, heavy snow (white-out condition), or even smoke.

Precipitation Analytic

Helios Precipitation Analytic detects moderate-to-heavy rain conditions that require reduced speed and could result in hydroplaning and localized flooding.

Transition Analytic

Helios Transition Analytic identifies transitioning and trending ground conditions that are predictive of major incidents (e.g. knowing exactly when snow begins to accumulate can help ensure safer travel and efficient deployment of resources).

The Helios API

The Helios Explore web app provides on-screen visualization capabilities to get the complete weather picture. Our interactive map interface allows you to browse live imagery from the vast camera network, view real-time weather alerts from the National Weather Service, and view traditional weather sources such as radar and cloud cover.

With access to the full Helios API, you can also perform powerful searches and save imagery using recordings or collections, all from your desktop or mobile device.
