Iteris releases SmartCycle system

Iteris has launched SmartCycle, a new product addition to its Vantage video detection product suite. Due to 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 the SmartCycle system can effectively differentiate between bicycles and other vehicles, enabling more efficient signalized intersections and maximized traffic throughput. 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 builds on the company’s proven Vantage video vehicle detection technology, which has been deployed worldwide, with more than 100,000 video detection sensors operational. “SmartCycle provides traffic engineers and planners with 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 with a clear advantage, as we pursue detection opportunities for the estimated 50,000 signalized intersections nationwide, where cycling is most abundant.”
