SANTA ANA, Calif. – December 18, 2018 – Iteris, Inc. (NASDAQ: ITI), the global leader in applied informatics for transportation and agriculture, today announced that Roy Jorgensen Associates, Inc., a world leader in maintenance management, has selected Iteris’ ClearPath Weather® to provide pavement and weather forecasting services for improved winter road maintenance response in support of the Colorado Department of Transportation’s (CDOT) Central 70 Project.
The solution will give Roy Jorgensen access to high-resolution pavement weather forecasting and treatment alternatives, and maintenance decision support system (MDSS) services, during the reconstruction of key snow plow routes on I-70 in Denver, Colorado.
Under the terms of the contract, Iteris will also provide Roy Jorgensen with 24/7 access to ClearPath Weather’s severe weather advisories and alerting services. In addition to providing weather and pavement forecasting, Iteris will be integrating automated vehicle location (AVL) and maintenance data collection (MDC) to help improve real-time recommendations. This data will be collected on all winter maintenance vehicles deployed by Roy Jorgensen Associates.
“We are excited to work in partnership with CDOT on the Central 70 Project, implementing a robust operation and maintenance program to facilitate traveling public safety within the Denver metro region,” said Sara Henningsgaard, vice president at Roy Jorgensen Associates. “By partnering with Iteris and using ClearPath Weather as part of our MDSS operations, we now have access to advanced weather and pavement data and analysis to address weather impact on this corridor.”
“We are thrilled to support CDOT’s goal of improving the safety and mobility of Denver’s roads by providing access to hyperlocal current and forecast pavement and weather data,” said Jim Chambers, senior vice president and general manager, Agriculture and Weather Analytics at Iteris. “Data insights from ClearPath Weather will help Roy Jorgensen’s engineers make the best road maintenance decisions possible.”
ClearPath Weather is based on Iteris’ Highway Condition Analysis and Prediction System (HiCAPS™) pavement condition model and leverages proprietary application programming interfaces (APIs) to access weather data. The cloud-based MDSS solution features an easy-to-use interface, and advanced visualization tools and mapping, which give state and local agency maintenance managers access to real-time information, such as looping radar, satellite imagery, weather forecasts, plow location, and route-specific weather and pavement conditions.
