Iteris has been chosen by the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) to upgrade ITS across five cities in the San Francisco Bay Area.
The three-year project is supporting the Metropolitan Transportation Commission’s (MTC) Innovative Deployments to Enhance Arterials (IDEA) programme, which seeks to improve the Bay Area’s readiness for C/AV technologies.
Iteris will provide engineering services for the IDEA programme, including C/AV applications and virtual bicycle detection technology for signal operations across 79 intersections in Los Gatos, Emeryville, Walnut Creek, Concord and Dublin.
Ramin Massoumi, senior vice president and general manager, Transportation Systems at Iteris, says the company is supporting the IDEA programme to help improve mobility and safety at the key intersections in the five cities.
