Iteris operates in the field of applied informatics for transportation and agriculture. The company will provide data and analytical tools needed to help improve the safety and efficiency of roadways across the state.
Utilizing real-time and archived traffic data from HERE Technologies – a mapping and location platform services company– the ClearGuide platform will provide MnDOT with contextual real-time and historical transportation analytics and data.
Under the terms of the agreement, MnDOT has access to ClearGuide features, including: dynamic maps to support detailed traffic analysis; features to help identify and mitigate bottlenecks and congestion; animations to analyze events and optimize response plans; historical trend reports and congestion charts to track reliability and support planning; and easy analysis of major Minnesota roadways.
Additionally, according to the company, the ClearGuide platform is designed with the ability to grow and expand to meet MnDOT’s future challenges as the transportation industry grows further, to ingest a wider range of information, such as data from connected and autonomous vehicles.
