We believe a smarter future is reached when different industries co-create value by

Founded on knowledge and expertise
Klimator was established within the world of research with a vision to one day scale the findings to the global scene. Over the past decades, Klimator has matured into a trusted expert within the world of applied road climatology and environmental data, providing actionable insights to multiple industries.
Today Klimator provides solutions to leading actors within:
- Advanced mobility and autonomous development
- Winter maintenance and road safety
- Smart city development
Our unparalleled legacy within road climatology and research started in 1984 when Torbjörn Gustavsson and Jörgen Bogren, then being two young students, decided to pursue PhDs in Applied Road Climatology at Gothenburg University, Sweden. After numerous years at the University, and becoming prominent experts within their field, they decided in 2000 to start a company with the vision to one day commercialize their globally recognized research. And so Klimator was born. The first ten years of Klimator were characterized by consultancy and development projects, broadening the scope of how to use the knowledge as well as creating the embryo of our systems today. With the development of smart cities and advanced mobility in 2010, Klimator started providing the winter maintenance industry as well as the automotive industry with actionable insights, iterating the research into value-adding products.
Today Klimator has matured into a market leader within digital road weather solutions, combining sensors, software, and cloudware. Helping companies, municipalities, and governments around the world bridge the digital divide to operate more sustainably and efficiently. The foundation of knowledge we expand on supports our world-leading status within our domain which creates a competitive edge. All Klimator’s products and solutions build on the same principles as great research, delivering intelligence at scale and driving innovation. Continuing parallel research alongside our commercial activities keeps us on our toes, and our customers and partners choose us repeatedly to deliver the best and most reliable solutions on the market. Our focus is to always improve and provide state-of-the-art technologies to elevate the true potential of an autonomous future. Our fundamental objective is to continuously bring value to shareholders, industries, and society by empowering customers to capture and create real value.
