One of the USA’s leading suppliers of applied informatics systems for the transportation industry, Iteris, has announced two new contracts for its commercial vehicle operations (CVO) platform, which provides software-as-a-service (SaaS) solutions for commercial vehicle inspection, enforcement, and data aggregation.
With its recent selection by South Carolina, Iteris has added two more states to its CVO platform in the first half of calendar year 2018, bringing the total number of deployments of its roadside inspection solutions to 22 states.
Fifteen of the 22 states use the company’s Inspect technology. Fueled by CVIEW-Plus data services, Iteris Inspect aggregates and automates the roadside inspection form process, saving commercial vehicle operators and inspectors up to 50% of the time spent conducting commercial vehicle inspections. This also results in less time roadside for law enforcement personnel, which helps to improve safety for police officers, as well as benefiting safety and mobility across broader transportation networks.
The flagship product of the company’s CVO safety compliance platform is its base for compliance and enforcement, Commercial Vehicle Information Exchange Window (CVIEWplus). The software is certified by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) as CVISN/ITD compliant.
Powered by data from CVIEWplus, the Inspect system keeps commerce moving efficiently by providing commercial vehicle inspectors with an easy-to-use, federally compliant tool for performing roadside inspections of heavy trucks, buses and other commercial vehicles. It allows inspectors to submit full reports for any inspection level to the FMCSA’s Safety and Fitness Electronic Records (SAFER) System, reducing the inspection time by up to 50%. Last year, 960,000 inspections were carried out by the Inspect system, a 47% increase over 2016. Inspect also facilitates compliance with the FMCSA’s Hours of Service and Electronic Log Devices regulations.
“The increased adoption of our CVO platform is testament to the desire of state agencies across the USA to adopt smart technology,” said Ramin Massoumi, senior vice president and general manager of transportation systems at Iteris. “We are pleased to announce these two new contracts for our Inspect and CVIEW-Plus SaaS solutions, which will increase goods movement and enhance safety for truck drivers, roadside inspectors and police officers, as well as improving mobility and safety throughout the wider transportation network.”
