Iteris Awarded $9.6 Million Contract By The Orange County Transportation Authority For Countywide Smart Mobility Initiative

Iteris, the world’s trusted technology ecosystem for smart mobility infrastructure management, announced it has been awarded a new contract by the Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA) for an unprecedented countywide traffic signal synchronization project that will ultimately increase efficiency, safety and sustainability across the entire county.

Under the terms of the $9.6 million agreement, Iteris will provide signal timing design, operations and maintenance for all 34 cities in Orange County, California, one of the most populous counties in the entire United States. The project will be a strategic reset of the traffic signal synchronization baseline for over 2,500 signals—representing a significant shift in approach and the need to leverage emerging technologies.

Iteris will utilize its ClearGuide® SaaS solution, rather than temporary and/or manual data collection methods that provide only limited insights, to efficiently capture a broader spectrum of signal performance metrics to guide signal retiming and subsequent monitoring of the network. In other words, with ClearGuide, Iteris traffic operations personnel can remotely monitor arterial travel times and reliability, identify congestion hotspots and prioritize further retiming efforts to enhance network performance. This will also be Iteris’ first deployment of Signal Trends, a new probe data-based solution within ClearGuide that helps implement and manage signal timing without reliance on roadside equipment.

The ClearGuide solution is a key component of Iteris’ ClearMobility® Platform, the world’s most complete solution to continuously monitor, visualize and optimize mobility infrastructure. ClearMobility 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’re excited to be working with the Orange County Transportation Authority on this important smart mobility initiative,” said Bernard Li, vice president, mobility professional services at Iteris. “The project represents an important shift toward data-driven decision making and continues OCTA’s position as a national leader in arterial management that focuses on safety and sustainability for all roadway users.”
