The Florida county will use Iteris technology to provide a range of services including traffic signal retiming, connected vehicle priority solutions and traffic management centre operations.
Hillsborough County Board of County Commissioners in Florida has awarded a four-year consulting and software-as-a-service (SaaS) contract with a ceiling of $8m to Iteris.
The aim of the programme is to support the management and operation of a smart transportation system that results in more efficient travel, improved safety and enhanced mobility for all road users in the Hillsborough County community, which spans Tampa, Plant City and Temple Terrace.
Under the terms of the agreement, Iteris will provide services that include traffic signal retiming, active arterial management, traffic operations support, traffic management centre (TMC) operations and staffing, and connected vehicle priority and pre-emption system programme management.
In addition, Hillsborough County will extend its use of Iteris’ ClearGuide mobility intelligence SaaS solution, which has been upgraded to include automated signal performance measures (ATSPM) capabilities, for the duration of the programme.
The four-year initiative will see Iteris optimise transportation system operations, respond to incidents and manage traffic, provide and support improved interagency multi-modal communications and coordination, train and develop operations staff, and equip and accommodate transportation system for emerging trends and technologies.
“This initiative represents the continued expansion of Iteris’ specialised consulting services in a key geographic market, and will help to support the management and operation of the region’s existing mobility infrastructure”
ClearGuide is a key component of the ClearMobility solution, which continuously monitors, visualises and optimises mobility infrastructure. It applies cloud computing, artificial intelligence, advanced sensors, advisory services and managed services to help ensure roads are safe, travel is efficient, and communities thrive.
“We are proud to support Hillsborough County’s goal of improving safety and mobility for all road users with this wide-ranging smart mobility and safety programme,” said Joe Molinaro, associate vice president, transportation systems at Iteris.
“This initiative represents the continued expansion of Iteris’ specialised consulting services in a key geographic market, and will help to support the management and operation of the region’s existing mobility infrastructure, while ensuring it is equipped to accommodate emerging technologies such as connected and automated vehicles.”
Iteris expects to commence the smart mobility and safety programme immediately.
