The one-year project supports Lee County’s initiative to keep pace with
advancements in connected and autonomous vehicle (CAV) technologies to
ensure an efficient transition to future traffic management, including
understanding cybersecurity risks, forecasting technology trends and
identifying grant opportunities.

Under the terms of the contract, Iteris, with support from Gannet
Fleming, will provide a CAV technology strategic plan to assist Lee
County staff in understanding how tech companies, automotive
manufacturers, infrastructure providers and others are advancing their
products, and how Lee County can accommodate future technology to manage
congestion, improve safety and enhance CAV readiness.

“Our citizens expect the County to make prudent investments with their
tax dollars and we are going to be working alongside Iteris to develop
an actionable and cost-feasible plan to accommodate the future of
transportation technology,” said Randy Cerchie, director at the Lee
County Department of Transportation. “We look forward to using this CAV
technology strategic plan to reduce traffic congestion and improve the
safety of Lee County road users long into the future.”

“We are proud to support Lee County’s forward-thinking CAV initiative
with what will be the first local agency strategic plan of its kind in
the state of Florida,” said Moe Zarean, vice president and assistant
general manager, Transportation Systems at Iteris. “Iteris’ continued
involvement in the growing connectedness of multimodal road users
positions us well to help communities around the nation be ready for the
future and ultimately improve the safety and efficiency of our nation’s
transportation networks.”

This project is in line with several CAV deployments Iteris is working
on across the United States – including oversight
of pilot deployments
, smart
work zones
, advanced
pedestrian detection
and automated
commercial vehicle inspections
. Iteris also led the development and
evolution of the U.S. ITS architecture reference for over three decades,
initiating the Connected Vehicle Reference Implementation Architecture
in 2012 and continuing
to support
the evolution of the combined ARC-IT for the US
Department of Transportation’s Federal Highway Administration.
