SANTA ANA, CA--June 17, 2014: Iteris, Inc. (NYSE MKT: ITI), a leader in providing intelligent traffic management information solutions, has been selected, along with HERE, to compete with a small group of other companies to provide traffic data and analytics for the I-95 Corridor Coalition, which spans nearly 2,000 miles from Maine to Florida.

“We currently work with HERE to deliver innovative, real-time visual analytics, and traffic data services to agencies and look forward to serve the eastern seaboard.”

Iteris will work in partnership with HERE to deliver advanced traffic analytics to support the I-95 Coalition, allowing decision-makers to closely monitor traffic and weather conditions, measure performance, optimize operations, and communicate actionable information to traffic engineers. Iteris plans to provide the I-95 Coalition with a robust website, analytic tools, and archiving capabilities for real-time and historic traffic and weather information.

“The opportunity provided by the I-95 Coalition members confirms the integral role of technology in traffic management operations,” said Iteris’ Tom Blair, senior vice president, iPerform. “We currently work with HERE to deliver innovative, real-time visual analytics, and traffic data services to agencies and look forward to serve the eastern seaboard.”

Roy Kolstad, VP Enterprise Sales, HERE, commented: “Our traffic services, along with the Iteris iPeMS platform, can enhance the movement of people and goods along and within this corridor. We look forward to working with the states to enhance their operations and provide valuable traveler information to citizens. The I-95 Coalition members will have the opportunity to receive the highest quality data, tools and support in the most efficient manner possible.”

The iPeMSŪ software platform measures, manages, and visualizes transportation networks, providing real-time, actionable information to optimize vehicle through-put of the entire network. With iPeMS, Iteris is able to deliver next generation cloud-based solutions that bring the power of advanced data analytics to performance monitoring, MAP-21 reporting requirements, traffic prediction, and hyper-local weather conditions to the public marketplace.

George Schoener of the I-95 Corridor Coalition commented: "The I-95 Coalition is pleased to announce the completion of a very thorough competitive process for procuring real-time speed, travel time data and analytics. As a result, the Coalition secured even higher quality specifications for accuracy, timeliness and granularity of the data. Additionally, the network emphasis was expanded to include freeways and arterials – creating an industry-first, multi-vendor, unified operations picture that spans critical road classes. We're looking forward to working with the HERE and Iteris team as part of this important project."
