Vantage SmartCycle Expands Iteris' Video Detection Product Suite for Traffic Monitoring
Iteris, Inc., a leader in providing intelligent traffic management information solutions, has launched SmartCycle, a new product addition to its Vantage video detection product suite. Facing rising fuel costs, more commuters are taking to the streets on bicycles, creating an increased need for accurate bicycle detection at intersections.
An intersection configured with SmartCycle can effectively differentiate between bicycles and other vehicles, enabling more efficient signalized intersections and maximized traffic throughput. Vantage SmartCycle can accurately detect vehicles and bicycles with a single video detection camera facing a dedicated approach. Agencies using bicycle timing can now benefit from bicycle-specific virtual detection zones that can be placed anywhere within the approaching traffic lanes, eliminating the need for separate bicycle-only detection systems.
"SmartCycle provides traffic engineers and planners a cost effective way to bring their traffic management systems into compliance with new regulations that require bicycle detection capabilities," said Abbas Mohaddes, President and CEO of Iteris. "We believe the addition of SmartCycle provides us a clear advantage as we pursue detection opportunities for the estimated 50,000 signalized intersections nationwide where cycling is most abundant."
SmartCycle builds on Iteris' proven Vantage video vehicle detection technology, which has been deployed throughout North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia, and the Middle East. Iteris is the market leader with more than 100,000 video detection sensors operational worldwide. A global network of exclusive distributors and direct sales offices provide local technical support and training. SmartCycle is available for immediate purchase and implementation.
