Iteris has received a contract from the City of Round Rock for providing mobility intelligence solutions and video detection technology updates across Texas.

Under the terms of the $1m contract, Iteris will configure its video detection systems to provide the data required for Iteris SPM and will be delivered on a software-as-a-service basis.

In addition, the company will be responsible for developing and deploying new signal timing plans.

The company said that the real-time data from Iteris SPM and ClearGuide will determine new signal timing for the city’s major arterials and corridors.

Iteris Roadway Sensors senior vice-president and general manager Todd Kreter said: “We are pleased to be able to support the City of Round Rock’s goal of improving safety and mobility for the city’s vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians while maximising efficiency throughout its transportation network.

“Texas is one of the largest and most progressive transportation markets in the US, which makes the city’s continued confidence in Iteris’ advanced video detection technology and mobility intelligence solutions all the more significant.”

The project will see the implementation of mobility intelligence solutions, as well as upgrading detection infrastructure, to improve traffic flow and safety across major intersections in the Texas city.

In addition, the installation of new technology is expected to support the city’s goal of improving safety and mobility for vehicles, bicyclists and pedestrians.

The company further added that its Vantage Next detection system will enable the City of Round Rock to differentiate between vehicles, bicyclists, and pedestrians, and ensure traffic flow across the city.

Last month, South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT) implemented Iteris’ ClearGuide solution to manage traffic and improve mobility across the state.

The solution, which leverages traffic data from HERE Technologies, will help SCDOT to assess and visualise road transportation across the state and subsequently identify ways to mitigate congestion and improve road safety.

The use of the ClearGuide solution is also expected to help the state department to expedite evacuation during weather emergencies.
