Iteris has launched Vantage CV, an integrated detection and connected vehicle (CV) system for safer intersections.
Vantage CV combines traffic detection, cellular Vehicle to Everything (C-V2X) transportation infrastructure communications and connected vehicle safety applications into a single solution. The company says that there are advanced safety features, scalable design and complete intersection coverage.
Vantage CV integrates traffic detection data from Iteris’ Vantage Apex or Vantage Next detection systems to generate real-time safety alerts distributed to connected vehicles via the BlueToad Spectra CV roadside unit. Drivers can be alerted to safety risks such as pedestrians in the crosswalk and predicted red-light runners.
However, not all vehicles are equipped with V2X technology. To overcome this, the Iteris system includes in-vehicle technologies that agencies can deploy quickly on selected fleet vehicles - such as school buses and maintenance vehicles - for immediate safety benefits.
As part of the Vantage CV launch, Iteris has also released the next generation of BlueArgus, now called VantageArgus CV. This is an essential software component of Vantage CV providing CV data visualisation, travel times, dynamic corridor analysis and other system monitoring and analytics capabilities, says Joe Bergera, chief executive of Iteris.
“Combined with Iteris’ market-leading portfolio of detection solutions, transportation agencies now have access to everything they need to create smarter cities with improved safety, mobility and sustainability," he says.
Iteris is based in Austin in the US state of Texas. The company’s cloud-enabled solutions - delivered through its ClearMobility Platform - monitor, visualise and optimise mobility infrastructure around the world and help bridge legacy technology silos.
