(TSX VENTURE: ITT; OTC: INOTF; FRANKFURT: 7IT) (“IoT Inc.” or the “Company”) invests in data-driven industrial IoT companies that deliver significant benefit to the verticals they serve. The Company is pleased to announce that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Weather Telematics Inc.

Predictiv RC enables vehicles to navigate safely in dangerous road conditions, predicting conditions 6-hours in advance on any route, with more than 90% accuracy.
For autonomous vehicle OEMs and automotive Tier 1 suppliers, WTX’s Predictiv RC platform assists vehicles’ management of adverse road conditions for safer driving, while predicting road weather conditions ahead of the vehicle to ensure safer route selection.
For electric vehicle manufacturers, Predictiv RC provides essential data needed to accurately assess the battery life, especially in extreme cold and hot weather conditions.
