will use this year’s ITS World Congress Copenhagen to focus on improving safety for vulnerable road users, including pedestrians and cyclists, moving through signalised intersections. The company will show how smart sensors can improve safety while also detecting and counting vehicles.
Iteris has long been at the forefront of highly accurate vehicle detection at intersections in all weather and roadway conditions. The company’s fundamental vehicle algorithm expertise during rain, sun glare, shadows and many other conditions, has proven to provide the highest level of efficient signal operations.
With modern advancements in processing technology available in the last few years, Iteris says it can now provide other value-added benefits to signal operations with the accurate detection and differentiation of bicycles and pedestrians moving through the intersection.
With its SmartCycle and PedTrax algorithms available at no cost on its Vantage Edge 2 and Vantage Next platforms, agencies can take advantage of accurate detection of bicycles and pedestrians to improve safety. There are numerous safety applications available for either road user; such as additional real-time signage or various connected vehicle applications to alert drivers ahead of the intersection of the presence of bicycles and pedestrians. Each application gives drivers a few precious extra seconds to take precaution at approaching the intersection, and still ensure accurate vehicle detection for signaliSed operations.
Iteris has been a global leader in ITS Solutions for well over 20 years, with over 150,000 Vantage video detection units installed worldwide. The company, which has successfully deployed ITS Solutions in North America, Australia, Middle East, Asia and Latin America, will be in the ITS America Pavilion.
