Iteris, Inc., one of the global leaders in applied informatics for transportation, announced that it has been awarded two new contracts totaling more than $1 million to provide design, integration and operations services to the City of Inglewood and the City of Glendale’s traffic management centres (TMC), representing an expansion of Iteris’ operations services business in a core geographic market.
Under the terms of the City of Inglewood contract, Iteris will design its new main TMC and related traffic management operations systems across two sites and several offices. As part of the City’s overall intelligent transportation system buildout, the project will deploy state-of-the-art TMC technologies and a Signal Shop TMC system to support traffic operations, and facilitate the implementation of emergency management plans to allow for traffic redirection during major events, as well as traffic management around the city’s new football stadium.
Under the terms of the City of Glendale contract, Iteris will design and integrate the City’s TMC facility and equipment room, relocate and recommission existing fibre optics, deploy a new video management system and integrate it with existing field camera systems. The Glendale contract also includes the upgrade and reconfiguration of existing Cisco network communications and the complete analysis, selection and deployment of a new signal system supporting up to 240 signalised intersections.
Both programmes support the cities’ goals of ingesting data from the internet-of-things (IoT) devices into central traffic operations hubs that will serve to better anticipate traffic-related issues with the goal of improving road safety and efficiency for travelers.
“The cities of Inglewood and Glendale are demonstrating their commitment to finding smart city solutions to improve traffic safety and efficiency in these thriving Southern California transportation networks,” said Scott Carlson, Vice President and Assistant General Manager, Transportation Systems at Iteris. “We look forward to leveraging the expertise from our TMC implementation and staffing engagements across the country to resolve the issues facing freeways and arterial roads throughout the cities of Inglewood and Glendale.”
Iteris’ Transportation Systems business unit provides public and private entities, including local city agencies, counties, institutions and state departments of transportation, comprehensive TMC solutions, encompassing everything from design concept to installation, configuration and staffing.
