How much time have you lost driving to the spot when the weather forecasts weren’t right?

WEZR makes you weather smart and helps you to become in tune with nature. The startup was founded in Montpellier, France in 2012 by Stphane Diner and Vincent Crosnier, two former pilots from the French Air Force.

How does it work? You open the app (iOs/Androd) and simply click on a map at a precise point (beach, behind the hill, in the valley), then you get a very accurate weather forecast on this precise point for the next 6 hours and now you have the right information to make a critical decision.

WEZR is a mobile weather station (connected sensor) that collects atmospheric data (temperature, relative humidity, absolute pressure) at your exact location. Data is transferred to WEZRs servers to be merged with the conventional weather models. This crucial step is managed by a state-of-the-art computational algorithm designed by meteorologists, climatologists and mathematicians that immediately creates a new weather model, customized for the users special location in the form of a highly accurate dashboard indicating time and evolution in the next hours.

WEZR forecasts evolve constantly, taking into consideration the latest observations from sensors, crowdsourced data, and lots of open source data and has been certified by the French equivalent of the NASA (CNRS).

Stop by WEZR’s booth at this year’s XBA Kitexpo to test it out!
