RICHMOND, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Iteris, Inc. (NASDAQ: ITI), the world’s trusted technology ecosystem for smart mobility infrastructure management, today announced that it has been awarded a sub-contract by the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) for connected and automated vehicle (CAV) related planning services, representing continued demand for Iteris’ specialized consulting services in a key geographic market.
The project supports VDOT’s initiative to keep pace with advancements in CAV technologies. The goal is to ensure an efficient transition to future transportation systems management and operations. This is achieved through an understanding of CAV data needs, cybersecurity and privacy risks, technology trends, and the potential for altering the transportation data paradigm.
Under the terms of the sub-contract, Iteris will deliver a CAV data strategic plan to help VDOT gain a high-level understanding of how to integrate CAV data from external sources into VDOT’s information technology (IT) and operations technology (OT) related systems. This will help enhance their business functions, and conversely, by sharing agency-wide business data from their IT- and OT-related systems, help serve CAV data needs and support deployment of CAV applications.
“We are proud to support VDOT’s forward-thinking CAV initiative with what will be the first strategic plan of its kind in the Commonwealth of Virginia,” said Dr. Moe Zarean, general manager, Mobility Operations Services at Iteris. “Iteris’ involvement in the growing connectedness of multimodal road users positions us to help communities around the nation prepare for the future, and enhance the value, effectiveness and resilience of their existing transportation infrastructure.”
The project is in line with several CAV deployments Iteris is working on across the U.S. – including oversight of pilot deployments, smart work zones, advanced pedestrian detection and automated commercial vehicle inspections. Iteris also led the development and evolution of the U.S. ITS architecture reference for over three decades, initiating the Connected Vehicle Reference Implementation Architecture in 2012 and continues to support the evolution of the combined ARC-IT for the US Department of Transportation’s Federal Highway Administration.
