System Automates 24/7 Measurement of Pedestrian Crossing Activity at
SANTA ANA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#ITE—Iteris,
Inc. (NASDAQ: ITI), the global leader in applied informatics for
transportation and agriculture, today announced that it will unveil its PedTrax™
computer vision technology for pedestrian measurement at the ITE
2016 Annual Meeting August 14-17 in Anaheim, Calif.
With PedTrax, Iteris is adding new pedestrian measurement capabilities
to its industry-leading advanced video detection platforms that already
include the world’s first bicycle detection and differentiation feature, SmartCycle®.
PedTrax automates measurement of both the count, direction and speed of
pedestrians in crosswalks to provide insights on levels of street life.
“Complete Streets embrace active transportation modes including walking
and cycling, and their management is more effective with a
performance-based approach for street measurements. As cities look at
our streets from the view of everyone who actually uses them, getting an
accurate and comprehensive view of pedestrian activity can be difficult,
costly and time-consuming,” said Todd Kreter, Senior Vice President and
General Manager, Roadway Sensors. “Iteris engineers designed this new
PedTrax computer vision technology for automated pedestrian measurement
at intersections to improve safety and mobility without the need for new
Protecting Our Most Vulnerable Intersection Users with Accurate,
With PedTrax, transportation
professionals and officials can make cities safer for pedestrians with
better-informed decisions based on foot traffic volume, direction and
speed to optimize intersection signal timing, and to inform proactive
improvements to signage and striping, intersection design, overpass
locations, school crossing guard deployment, and even economic
development programs. Automated counting of the number and speed of
pedestrians provides better on-screen reporting in traffic control
centers. PedTrax presents reliable, current data for grant applications
and performance monitoring with documented down-to-the-minute as well as
seasonal trends in pedestrian traffic patterns.
The data and analytics supplied by PedTrax, along with SmartCycle, can
inform agencies where roadway operations should be made more pedestrian-
or bicycle-friendly, contributing to safer and more livable communities.
Building on Iteris’ Strong History of Innovation for Safer, More
Efficient and Smarter Transportation Systems
The new PedTrax
pedestrian measurement algorithm will be pre-installed on all new
Vantage® detection systems and will be available as a free firmware
upgrade to existing Edge®2 and Vantage Next® systems customers that
employ the latest hardware revisions. This computer vision advancement
is the latest in a series of new intersection camera and processor
updates Iteris has brought to its transportation customers recently. In
addition, Iteris was recently awarded a $2.1
million traffic signal synchronization project from the Orange County
Transportation Authority and a $19
million, five year contract to expand its training program with the
Federal Highway Administration and the National Highway Institute for
safer, more efficient and smarter transportation.
Iteris and PedTrax at the ITE 2016 Annual Meeting
will be exhibiting at the ITE Annual Meeting in Anaheim, Calif. From
August 14-16, 2016 and demonstrating the new PedTrax technology at booth
#305. For more information or to schedule a demo please e-mail email@example.com.
