Iteris is to continue its long-running advisory role in the development of the US's ITS ecosystem.
US Department of Transportation has awarded a three-year, $9.5m deal which will see the company supporting the evolution of the Architecture Reference for Cooperative and Intelligent Transportation (ARC-IT) content to reflect ongoing changes in ITS.
The task order is made under Iteris’ General Services Administration Multiple Award Schedule contract from the Federal Highway Administration Intelligent Transportation Systems Joint Program Office (ITS JPO).
“Since its initial release in 1996, the ITS architecture programme has been a vital and constantly evolving reference for ITS and emerging technology projects,” said Moe Zarean, general manager, mobility operations services at Iteris.
Iteris most recently expanded ARC-IT to support multimodal accessible travel (MAT), with updates addressing accessible navigation, payment integration, and vulnerable road user safety across multiple modes.
ARC-IT has also been updated to better support management of electronic traffic regulations, addressing electronic communication of traffic regulations to connected and automated vehicles.
