Virginia Department of Transportation (VDoT) has given an $11.4m order to Iteris as part of a multi-year contract whose value is expected to be more than $20m.
The deal takes in smart mobility as well as safety and sustainability programmes, with Iteris providing a data portal, a real-time traveller information system, new incident management tools and upgraded video distribution services.
The data service will revise and expand on the SmarterRoads distribution platform and Iteris says it will give VDoT "greater data management and usage tools as the number of datasets, real-time feeds and registered users grow".
The video service will use VDoT’s new statewide fibre network "to significantly lower operational costs, while providing access to over 1,600 cameras and video feeds for operational and broadcast use via agency partner and media portals".
Iteris says its traveller information service will provide personalised alerts through website, phone and mobile applications: "VDoT will also have an incident command mobile app for field operations staff and a new two-way alert system to reach the public in specific geographic areas experiencing a major event."
“We are proud to support a programme that will increase the value, effectiveness and resilience of the region’s existing transportation infrastructure, while also improving air quality and reducing fuel consumption through improved traffic operations,” says Dr. Moe Zarean, general manager, mobility operations services at Iteris.
