The South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT) in the US has deployed Iteris’ next-generation traveller information services solution, ClearRoute.

With the installation of ClearRoute, SCDOT will be able to provide a significantly enhanced user experience to the commuters who depend on the state’s 511 traveller information service.

Iteris Transportation Systems vice-president and assistant general manager Moe Zarean said: “Iteris is excited to introduce ClearRoute, which will make available a series of upgrades, enhancements and new features to the users of the SCDOT 511 traveller information system.

“In addition to providing an unparalleled technology solution, we are committed to continuing to deliver the highest level of customer service to South Carolina and its citizens.”

ClearRoute is a component of the ClearMobility Platform and will offer traveller information through mobile apps, as well as websites and interactive voice response (IVR) phone lines in a flexible and streamlined infrastructure.

It will also help to reduce traffic congestion and improve mobility across the state of South Carolina.

As part of SCDOT’s deployment, Iteris upgraded the SC511 to a suite of SC511 mobile apps and transitioned the SC511 IVR.

Iteris also upgraded the SC511 website with advanced solutions to ensure continued innovation and longevity.

The new features and enhancements that are part of the SC511 system upgrade include Waze crowdsourcing, which is a look-ahead feature that notifies users of upcoming incidents or construction along their route, as well as truck parking, weather integration and best-available route information.

Earlier this month, Iteris was selected by the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) to deploy a near-miss identification system at key intersections in three Florida counties in the US.
