SANTA ANA, Calif.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Iteris, Inc. (NASDAQ: ITI), the global leader in applied informatics for transportation and agriculture, today announced the Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA) has engaged with the company to conduct a Vehicle-to-Infrastructure State of the Practice Review. The study will cover connected vehicle technology between vehicles (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) and will make recommendations for how the OCTA can advance their development and use as the technologies and their applications mature.
“Understanding and advancing these technologies will not only make our roadways safer, but also operate more efficiently. With our study, OCTA will help to shape the roll-out of V2V and V2I in its region and pave the way for other regions.”
Connected Vehicle technology, which includes V2V and V2I communications, such as the sharing of traffic signal data with vehicles, presents enormous potential to reduce crashes on roadways. Iteris is at the forefront of designing and implementing these technologies having created the Connected Vehicle Reference Implementation Architecture (CVRIA) for the USDOT and through the company’s involvement in Connected and Autonomous vehicle testbeds in Ohio, Michigan and Virginia.
“Connected vehicle technology holds tremendous promise to prevent crashes,” said Ramin Massoumi, general manager and senior vice president of Transportation Systems at Iteris. “Understanding and advancing these technologies will not only make our roadways safer, but also operate more efficiently. With our study, OCTA will help to shape the roll-out of V2V and V2I in its region and pave the way for other regions.”
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates that safety applications enabled by V2V and V2I could eliminate or mitigate the severity of up to 80% of non-impaired crashes, including crashes at intersections or while changing lanes.
Iteris has decades of experience in V2I standards in planning, deployment, integration and operations. In addition to the CVRIA, the company developed and maintains the United States’ Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) architecture since 1996, and this year Iteris will combine the two architectures to further build-out the guidelines for connected vehicle and smart community initiatives.
