Iteris is promoting Cisco’s Connected Roadway solution through initiatives between the companies which include a demo at the Smart Cities Innovation Accelerator during this week’s Innovator’s Forum in Las Vegas, US.
Iteris is to integrate its Vantage Next video detection platform with Cisco’s Kinetic software solution to help improve traffic flow and reduce congestion.
The edge-processing Internet of Things solution is being deployed with Las Vegas city authorities and will analyse multimodal data from vehicles, bicycles and pedestrians for a number of use cases.
Michael Sherwood, Las Vegas director of information technologies, says: “Iteris’ integration with Cisco’s Connected Roadway solution will produce insights that highlight the advantages video detection and advanced networking can have on a city’s transportation system.”
Iteris says the integration of Cisco hardware and software will allow the company’s Intersection as a Service offering to support advanced capabilities for edge processing as well as larger data sets and connected vehicles applications.
As part of a broader agreement, Iteris and Cisco will address smart city initiatives through joint sales and co-marketing activities to key accounts across the US. Future integration of Iteris video and radar detection sensors with the Cisco Kinetic platform will be showcased at ITS conferences throughout the year, including the ITS America Annual Meeting in Washington, DC from 4-7 June.
