Standardised data architecture enables ClearGuide to provide real-time travel-time data to Iris for the automatic update of variable message signs through work zones across Minnesota.
Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) has announced the first statewide deployment of an expanded ClearGuide, Iteris’ software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution for open-architecture smart mobility infrastructure management.
The solution is now integrated with the Intelligent Roadway Information System (Iris) open-source advanced traffic management system (ATMS). ClearGuide’s integration with Iris is enabled by the ClearMobility cloud.
With this new deployment, ClearMobility’s standardised data architecture enables ClearGuide to seamlessly provide real-time travel-time data to Iris for the automatic update of variable message signs (VMS) through work zones across Minnesota. It will also allow VMSs to be overlayed on ClearGuide’s real-time maps.
MnDOT has been using Iteris’ analytics services since 2013 and since adding ClearGuide in 2019 has had access to transportation performance measures capabilities, including:
“MnDOT will now be able to leverage the seamless two-way flow of real-time traffic information between the systems to be disseminated via VMSs throughout the state”
The ClearMobility cloud’s mobility data management engine, application programming interface (API) framework and microservices ecosystem provide standardised data ingestion, cleansing and analytics, as well as authentication and security for each component of the platform, Iteris reports.
“It is our privilege to support MnDOT’s goal of improving the performance of its roadways, as well as the safety and quality of life of the traveling public, with this new integration between Iteris’ ClearGuide solution and the IRIS ATMS,” said Scott Perley, vice president, application and cloud solutions at Iteris.
“Enabled by Iteris’ ClearMobility Cloud, MnDOT will now be able to leverage the seamless two-way flow of real-time traffic information between the systems to be disseminated via VMSs throughout the state, and ultimately make Minnesota’s roads safer and more efficient.”
Iteris reports integrations with other third-party systems are planned for future ClearMobility cloud releases. Additionally, subsequent releases of the ClearMobility cloud will provide further capabilities to support the company’s growing portfolio of process virtualisation offers, as well as enhance the company’s smart mobility infrastructure management solutions for various commercial sectors.
