Iteris, a smart mobility infrastructure management company, has announced the launch of VantageCare, a new managed service for smart mobility infrastructures, which are operated by state and local transportation agencies.

The company said that its new system is a software-enabled smart mobility infrastructure managed service, which makes use of process virtualisation for a uniform and proactive monitoring of intersections and arterial roads that are outfitted with Iteris’ advanced detection sensor systems.

Iteris claims that its VantageCare enhances transportation agencies’ existing traffic management and maintenance operations while upgrading intersection performance and safety.

The new solution is said to help agencies proactively identify and address various opportunities to optimise detection.

Iteris Roadway Sensors senior vice-president and general manager Todd Kreter said: “We are thrilled to announce the launch of VantageCare, a software-enabled managed service that utilises process virtualisation to enable transportation agencies nationwide to proactively optimise and maintain the health of their Iteris detection systems.

“With the addition of VantageCare, transportation agencies can augment their existing traffic management operations, giving them peace of mind and the ability to focus on other priorities, as performance and safety are improved throughout their transportation network.”

By launching VantageCare, a key component of its ClearMobility Platform, Iteris has expanded its software-enabled managed services portfolio.

ClearMobility Platform has been designed to continuously monitor, visualise and optimise mobility infrastructure around the globe to ensure safer roads and more efficient travel.

Last November, Iteris secured a four-year consulting services and software-as-a-service (SaaS) contract from Hillsborough County in Florida, the US. The contract has a ceiling of $8m.

Under this contract, Iteris will be responsible for providing traffic signal retiming, active arterial management, traffic operations support, connected vehicle priority and pre-emption system programme management.

Iteris has also agreed to provide a mobility intelligence SaaS solution, as well as traffic management centre (TMC) operations and staffing services.
