Moe Zarean of Iteris

Richmond, VA. 19 July 2022 – Iteris, Inc., the world’s trusted technology ecosystem for smart mobility infrastructure management, today announced that it has been awarded a new contract by the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) for smart mobility, safety and sustainability programmes, representing continued demand for Iteris’ platform as a service offering and mobility consulting services in a key geographic market.

The deal begins its initial phase of a multi-year contract with an $11.4 million (€11.18 million) order. The eventual total contract value is expected to exceed $20 million (€19.62 million).

Under the terms of the new multi-year contract, Iteris will provide VDOT platform-as-a-service capabilities, including an extensive data portal, next generation real-time traveler information system, new incident management tools and upgraded video distribution services on a statewide basis. Additionally, Iteris will lead a team of subject-matter experts to rearchitect and modernise several operations and content systems that support the safe and efficient movement of people and goods across the Commonwealth of Virginia.

The core services include data, video and traveler information. The Data Service will revise and expand on the highly successful SmarterRoads distribution platform and will provide VDOT with greater data management and usage tools as the number of data sets, real-time feeds and registered users grow. The Video Service will fully leverage VDOT’s new statewide fiber network to significantly lower operational costs, while providing access to over 1,600 cameras and video feeds for operational and broadcast use via agency partner and media portals.

The Traveler Information Services will provide personalised alerts through website, phone and mobile applications to help VDOT and its partners communicate with the travelers in Virginia. VDOT will also have an incident command mobile app for field operations staff and a new two-way alert system to reach the public in specific geographic areas experiencing a major event.

“We are thrilled that VDOT continues to recognise Iteris as a trusted partner to provide these services, and it demonstrates the agency’s continued commitment to improving safety, mobility and sustainability in the Commonwealth of Virginia,” says Dr. Moe Zarean, general manager, mobility operations services at Iteris. “Furthermore, we are proud to support a programme that will increase the value, effectiveness and resilience of the region’s existing transportation infrastructure, while also improving air quality and reducing fuel consumption through improved traffic operations.”
