Cisco and Iteris to work together on connected roadway project
Iteris, a US-based provider of applied informatic for transportation and agriculture, and Cisco have entered into a strategic partnership around connected railways.
Both companies have deployed an edge-processing IoT solution with Las Vegas, which will combine data feeds from the Iteris Vantage Next video detection platform with the Cisco Kinetic software solution to analyse multimodal data from pedestrians, bicycles, and vehicles for a number of high-value use cases to improve traffic flow and reduce congestion.
Through this collaborative programme, safety of pedestrians and connected vehicle applications will be highlighted at the Smart Cities Innovation Accelerator during The Innovator’s Forum in Las Vegas.
Michael Sherwood, director of information technologies at the City of Las Vegas, said: “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.”
In Australia, Bosch has become the first recipient of a permit that allows self-driving cars to be tested under a new scheme in Victoria. The license was issued as part of Victoria’s new Automated Driving System (ADS) scheme. This will be the first time when driverless technology will be trialled on high-speed rural streets, which will test a wide range of driving conditions.
