(NASDAQ: ITI), the global leader in applied informatics for transportation and agriculture, today announced that Transport Canada, Canada’s federal transportation agency, has selected Iteris iPeMS® to support its countrywide transportation system’s performance management program.
Utilizing real-time and archived traffic data from HERE Technologies – a global leader in mapping and location platform services – iPeMS provides Transport Canada with analytics and visualizations for car and truck-based traffic data.

The fully enhanced platform will be released later this year.
