Iteris and Continental showcased their new vehicle-to-everything (V2X)-enabled detection solution, Vantage Fusion™, at last week’s ITS America Annual Meeting.
Vantage Fusion is a hybrid traffic detection system that will enable real-world V2X applications and advanced intersection visualization. It is designed to help transportation agencies and automotive OEMs achieve safer, smarter and more sustainable roadways.
The Vantage Fusion hybrid video and radar detection system delivers unmatched detection, tracking and classification accuracy of vehicles, pedestrians and cyclists, making it ideal for agencies pursuing V2X applications. Looking ahead, the system will unlock a wide range of future capabilities, such as virtual basic safety messages (BSMs), near-miss analysis, queue detection, pedestrian activation and more.
The system will also offer unique intersection visualization capabilities that enable intuitive, top-down viewing of intersections in real time. Traffic engineers will “see” the entire intersection allowing them to identify traffic incidents, watch queues and monitor pedestrian activity before and within the crosswalk.
Vantage Fusion is fully compatible with Iteris’ ClearGuide SPM™ and VantageLive® software for more detailed and accurate traffic data analysis and visualization.
“We are thrilled to announce the launch of Vantage Fusion, a future-oriented hybrid traffic detection system that enables real-world V2X applications, while preparing cities and automotive OEMs for advancements in connected and automated vehicle (CAV) technologies,” said Todd Kreter, senior vice president and general manager, Advanced Sensor Technologies at Iteris. “With the addition of Vantage Fusion to Iteris’ market-leading portfolio of smart sensors, transportation agencies now have access to unmatched detection and tracking accuracy of vehicles, pedestrians and cyclists, as well as truly unique intersection visualization capabilities, to achieve their goals of improving safety, mobility and sustainability throughout complex transportation networks.”
The launch of Vantage Fusion is the first solution from Iteris and Continental’s recently announced, future-oriented traffic infrastructure collaboration to leverage automotive sensors, and infrastructure-to-vehicle (I2V) connectivity to make city transportation systems across North America safer, more efficient and more sustainable, while supporting local and regional transportation agencies’ efforts to achieve their Vision Zero goals, and preparing cities and automotive OEMs for advancements in CAV technologies.
