Iteris selected by the city of Fremont for the smart mobility and security initiative
SANTA ANA, Calif .– (COMMERCIAL THREAD) – Iteris, Inc. (NASDAQ: ITI), the global leader in intelligent mobility infrastructure management, today announced that it has been awarded a $ 940,000 contract by the City of Fremont to provide a complete smart security and mobility solution as part of The Fremont Boulevard Safe and Smart Corridor project, representing the continued demand for advanced detection systems, software as a service (SaaS) solutions and Iteris services in the northern California, a key geographic market.
Under the terms of the contract, Iteris will upgrade major intersections and arteries along a 10-mile section of Fremont Boulevard with hybrid video and radar detection systems to support the city’s vision to use smart mobility technologies to “Move traffic efficiently along the corridor at a safe speed, ensure the safe movement of pedestrians and bicycles, [and] improve traffic light management [systems]”.
Fremont Boulevard is one of the busiest corridors in the city and, as revealed by the situation report and the Fremont Vision Zero 2015 action plan, is a priority street for safety, 50% of fatalities of the city performing on segments of the corridor.
With Iteris’ Vantage Vector® hybrid video and radar detection systems, the city of Fremont will be able to differentiate between vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians to improve traffic flow and the safety of all road users, while saving money.
In addition to its ability to differentiate vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians for rich data and information on trends in traffic volumes and modes of transportation, the Vantage Vector system features high-precision radar detection technology. which enables safety applications in dilemma zones and at red lights. . Vantage Vector’s advanced dilemma zone and red light detection capabilities help reduce the risk of rear-end and right-angle collisions by extending a signal phase to give drivers more time to react or by activating a fully red phase, suspending traffic until the intersection is clear.
As part of the multi-year contract, Iteris will also deploy its VantageLive! ® SaaS solution to provide intersection analyzes for vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians, as well as its VantageCare ™ detection system optimization service to enable surveillance. monitoring and optimization of detection system performance. As part of the VantageCare service, Iteris will provide quarterly reports summarizing the health of detection systems and semi-annual trend reports with suggestions on optimizing traffic light timing.
This combination of smart mobility solutions will allow the city to adjust the timing of traffic lights to accommodate slower road users, and minimize congestion and delays. The reduced congestion, along with the ability to reduce the risk of intersection collisions, will help improve safety, while improving air quality through reduced carbon emissions.
Iteris’ advanced detection systems, SaaS solutions and services are key components of the ClearMobility ™ platform – the world’s most comprehensive solution for continuously monitoring, visualizing and optimizing mobility infrastructure. ClearMobility applies cloud computing, artificial intelligence, advanced sensors, advisory services and managed services to ensure safe roads, efficient travel and healthy communities.
“We are delighted to be working with Iteris to upgrade our smart mobility infrastructure by implementing state-of-the-art detection systems along Fremont Boulevard, as part of the Fremont Boulevard Safe and Smart Corridor project,” said Eric Hu , senior transport engineer. in the city of Frémont. “By using detection technologies, traffic analysis software and Iteris detection system optimization services, we are providing road users throughout the city with increased safety and mobility at intersections, all by improving air quality by reducing emissions.
“We are delighted to support the City of Fremont’s goal of improving the safety and mobility of drivers, cyclists and pedestrians, while maximizing efficiency and improving air quality along this route. critical corridor, ”said Brian Girardot, regional vice president of sales at Iteris. “This new contract, which testifies to the spirit of innovation of the city of Fremont, demonstrates a growing demand for Iteris’ cutting-edge solutions for the intelligent management of mobility infrastructure market and underlines the commitment of the city to a technological framework that will serve its communities for decades. to come.”
