Iteris focuses on improved video detection
Iteris participates at Intertraffic Amsterdam 2014 following an exciting year for the company with the release of several new detection capabilities and additional ITS products. During the event, Iteris says it will be focusing on the differentiators of its Vantage P10 product and how this highly compact detection camera is perfectly suited for the international market and adaptive control systems. As the company points out, it has developed advanced algorithms to provide optimal vehicle detection and counting at the stop bar which are used in all Iteris video detection systems.
With the inclusion of its SmartCycle algorithms within the P10 product, Iteris says it now has the ability to differentiate bicycles from vehicles. With the addition of new bicycle detection zones, a special output to the traffic controller can be provided to extend green times at signalised intersections, allowing cyclists to traverse the intersection safely by permitting additional time for them to cross.
In addition to its video detection expertise, Iteris says it is gaining momentum with a field-proven travel time system that collects and analyses MAC address data from Bluetooth or Wi-Fi enabled devices. The Vantage Velocity Travel Time System provides the most cost-effective means to gather travel time and origin-destination data, critical Measure-of-Effectiveness (MOE) for many agencies around the globe. By using field units deployed within existing traffic cabinets, and a unique data gathering technique that allows each field unit to capture 90% of passing devices, Iteris says an agency can quickly collect and use accurate travel time data for a myriad of applications.
