Iteris, Inc., an industry leader in applied informatics for transportation and agriculture, is partnering with Cisco to promote Cisco’s Connected Roadway solution, starting with a smart city initiative in Las Vegas, according to a press release.

Using data feeds from the Iteris Vantage Next video detection platform with the Cisco Kinetic software solution, their Internet of Things solution with the City of Las Vegas will analyze multimodal data from vehicles, bicycles and pedestrians in an effort to improve traffic flow and reduce congestion.

Specifically, pedestrian safety and connected vehicle applications will be of interest during this collaboration, which will include a demonstration at the Smart Cities Innovation Accelerator during this week’s The Innovator’s Forum in Las Vegas.

“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. 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.”

“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.”

“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.”

The initiative in Las Vegas is part of a broader partnership between Iteris and Cisco, which plan to team up on joint sales and co-marketing activities to key accounts for smart city initiatives across the United States.
