Iteris to Deploy Safety and Operational Improvement System at Key Intersections in the State of Florida
- Iteris will implement a near-miss identification safety system at key intersections across three Florida counties
- Groundbreaking program supports FDOT’s Driving Down Fatalities goals to proactively improve road safety by using smart mobility technologies to reduce crashes statewide
- Deal marks expansion of Iteris’ safety-focused software-as-a-service offering
SANTA ANA, Calif. – September 1, 2020 – Iteris, Inc. (NASDAQ: ITI), the global leader in smart mobility infrastructure management, today announced that the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) has selected Iteris to deploy a near-miss identification system at key intersections in three Florida counties in support of FDOT’s Driving Down Fatalities traffic safety vision of a congestion and fatality-free transportation system across the state.
Under the terms of the two-year software-as-a-service (SaaS) agreement, Iteris, in exclusive partnership with Advanced Mobility Analytics Group (AMAG), a world-leading digital platform provider for proactive road safety analytics and management, will implement the Iteris/AMAG near-miss system at key intersections in the City of Lakeland, Seminole County and the City of West Palm Beach.
Delivered as part of Iteris’ expanding safety-focused SaaS offering, a component of Iteris’ ClearMobility™ Platform, the Iteris/AMAG near-miss system will enable the state of Florida to proactively reduce crashes through both continuous and diagnostic safety evaluations. The Iteris/AMAG near-miss system will provide FDOT with critical insights for managing risk for vulnerable road users such as bicyclists and pedestrians, in addition to reducing vehicular conflicts. The solution will provide both spatial and temporal insights regarding crash risk, and will provide monitoring of both continuous risk to support operational decision making, and diagnostic risk to support safety planning and management functions.
Future enhancements to the near-miss system may also include a connected and automated vehicle-compatible traffic incident alert system, an object identification system and an adaptive traffic signal control for real-time safety optimization.
“By implementing this proactive safety and operational improvement system using innovative and emerging technologies, FDOT is demonstrating its strong commitment to improving the safety for motorists, bicyclists, and pedestrians,” said Ramin Massoumi, senior vice president and general manager, Transportation Systems at Iteris. “We look forward to leveraging our expertise in arterial and intersection operations, and AMAG’s advanced safety analytics, to deliver this groundbreaking solution, which allows for identification of intersections with high crash risk and assist in determining optimal countermeasures to avoid future crashes in the state of Florida.”
