Iteris says it has received a fourth task order with funding of $2.95 million under its indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract from the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA).
The five-year IDIQ contract is worth up to $19.5 million will continue to support the evolution of the Architecture Reference for Cooperative and Intelligent Transportation (ARC-IT) content to reflect changes in ITS, and connected and automated vehicle (C/AV) developments.
The point of this is to help transportation stakeholders see connections between their ITS and C/AV technologies, and facilitates integration and interoperability discussions as they plan and implement ITS and C/AV projects.
The programme supports statewide and regional ITS planning and deployment to encourage interoperability and C/AV preparedness through workshops, training and technical assistance - as well as alignment with, and support for, standards development activities, as well as international coordination of ITS architecture and standards.
“Iteris is honoured to continue our activities in support of the US Department of Transportation’s efforts to improve safety and mobility with this new task order under the ITS architecture program,” said Cliff Heise, regional vice president at Iteris.
“Iteris is privileged to have had the opportunity to lead the development and evolution of the US ITS architecture reference over the past three decades, including the evolution of connected and automated vehicle capabilities, and support for evolving ITS and C/AV standards.”
