SANTA ANA, Calif. – September 25, 2018 – Iteris, Inc. (NASDAQ: ITI), the global leader in applied informatics for transportation and agriculture, today announced that it has been awarded a $4.7 million task order under its indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract from the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) to provide continued development, evolution and deployment support for the intelligent transportation systems (ITS) reference architecture program.
Under the three-year task order agreement, which is part of a five-year IDIQ contract with a contract ceiling of up to $19.5 million, Iteris will support the evolution of the Architecture Reference for Cooperative and Intelligent Transportation (ARC-IT) content to reflect changes in ITS, and connected automated vehicle (CAV) developments. The program supports statewide and regional ITS planning and deployment to encourage interoperability and CAV preparedness through workshops, training and technical assistance. An important aspect of the program is alignment with and support for standards development activities, as well as international coordination of ITS architecture and standards concepts and approaches.
“We are proud to support the US Department of Transportation’s efforts to improve safety and mobility with this first task order under the ITS architecture program,” said Ramin Massoumi, senior vice president and general manager, Transportation Systems at Iteris. “Iteris is privileged to provide the necessary expertise to support the universal reference architecture for ITS, which represents the foundation of so many automated vehicle and connectivity projects nationwide.”
Iteris has led the development and evolution of the U.S. ITS architecture reference for over three decades, and initiated the Connected Vehicle Reference Implementation Architecture in 2012. Combining the two architectures into ARC-IT allows transportation stakeholders to see the linkages between their ITS and CAV technologies and facilitates integration and interoperability discussions as they plan and implement ITS and CAV projects. Iteris leads an experienced core team of Ice & Associates and Consystec. Additional team members include Trevilon and Booz Allen Hamilton.
