The collaborative programmes will focus on pedestrian safety in cities and connected vehicle applications
Informatics company, Iteris, and Cisco have rolled out an edge-processing Internet-of-Things (IoT) solution in Las Vegas to make roadways safer and more efficient.
The companies have also announced a strategic partnership that will promote Cisco’s Connected Roadway solution through a number of initiatives, with collaborative programmes focusing on pedestrian safety and connected vehicle applications.
Data feeds from the Iteris Vantage Next video detection platform will be combined with the Cisco Kinetic software solution to analyse multi-modal data from vehicles, bicycles and pedestrians to improve traffic flow and reduce congestion.
“Las Vegas is renowned for its heavy pedestrian traffic, so we are constantly working to deploy innovative, multimodal technologies to better manage the flow of vehicles and people,” said Michael Sherwood, director of information technologies at the City of Las Vegas. “Iteris’ integration with Cisco’s Connected Roadway solution will produce insights that highlight the advantages video detection and advanced networking can have on a city’s transportation system.”
Through the broader partnership agreement, Iteris and Cisco will address smart city initiatives through joint sales and co-marketing activities to key accounts across the US. This will include highlighting the integration of Cisco communication systems into current and future projects, ensuring its mutual customers have the most secure and reliable communication infrastructure for their end-to-end transportation systems.

In addition, by integrating Cisco hardware and software at the edge, the Iteris intersection-as-a-service offering will be able to support advanced capabilities for edge processing, as well as larger data sets and connected vehicle applications.
Future integration of Iteris video and radar detection sensors with the Cisco Kinetic platform will be showcased at intelligent transportation systems conferences throughout the year.
“We are excited to showcase how seamlessly Iteris’ advanced video detection integrates with Cisco’s industry-leading networking capabilities to ultimately enhance safety and mobility across the nation’s transportation networks,” said Todd Kreter, senior vice president and general manager, roadway sensors at Iteris.
“Iteris has been a key proponent of connected vehicle integration for many years and this partnership with Cisco is further testament to our dedication to advancing multimodal safety technology throughout our business.”
