Iteris Selected by San Francisco Metropolitan Transportation Commission for Connected and Automated Vehicle Initiative

Three-year Project will Prepare Five Bay Area Cities for Connected
and Automated Vehicles

  • MTC initiative will improve efficiency and safety of transportation
    systems, as well as decrease vehicle emissions and fuel consumption
  • Initiative leverages Iteris’ ITS expertise to prepare cities and
    states for advancements in connected and automated vehicle technology

SANTA ANA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/search?q=%24ITI&src=ctag” target=”_blank”gt;$ITIlt;/agt; lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/BayArea?src=hash” target=”_blank”gt;#BayArealt;/agt;–Iteris,
Inc
. (NASDAQ: ITI), the global leader in applied informatics for
transportation and agriculture, today announced that it has been
selected by the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) to enhance
and upgrade the intelligent transportation systems (ITS) across five
cities in the San Francisco Bay Area.


The three-year project supports MTC’s Innovative Deployments to Enhance
Arterials (IDEA) program, which seeks to enable the continuous
improvement of arterial operations and the enhancement of the Bay Area’s
readiness for connected and automated vehicle (CAV) technologies.

As part of the project, Iteris will provide systems engineering services
for the IDEA program, including the deployment of connected vehicle
applications, automated vehicle applications and virtual bicycle
detection technology for signal operations across 79 intersections in
Los Gatos, Emeryville, Walnut Creek, Concord and Dublin. Iteris played a
similar role in the IDEA program’s predecessor, the Next Generation
Arterial Operations Program, which deployed adaptive traffic control
systems in Dublin, Fremont, San Leandro and Hayward, as well as
enhancements to Santa Clara County’s traffic responsive system.

“MTC has been a national leader in using technology to make the Bay Area
transportation network safer, more efficient and easier to navigate,”
said Andrew Fremier, deputy executive director at MTC. “We look forward
to working with Iteris to make sure our region is prepared for the
connected and automated vehicles of the future.”

“We are proud to support MTC’s IDEA program and help to improve mobility
and safety across key intersections in these five Bay Area cities,” said
Ramin Massoumi, senior vice president and general manager,
Transportation Systems at Iteris. “Iteris’ continued involvement in the
growing connectedness of multimodal road users puts us in prime position
to prepare one of the most technologically advanced regions in the
nation for the CAV revolution.”

This project is in line with the many other CAV deployments Iteris is
working on across the United States – including smart work zones, advanced
pedestrian detection
and automated
commercial vehicle inspections
. Iteris also led the development and
evolution of the U.S. ITS architecture reference for over three decades,
initiating the Connected Vehicle Reference Implementation Architecture
in 2012 and continuing
to support
the evolution of the combined ARC-IT for the US
Department of Transportation’s Federal Highway Administration.
