Iteris adds new advanced analytics features to its iPeMS software platform


Iteris, one of the leaders in applied informatics for the transportation industry, has announced the availability of a series of advanced analytics features with the Fall release of upgrades to its iPeMS (Iteris Performance Measurement System) software platform. 

The company’s iPeMS is a leading data visualization performance measurement platform that is deployed across 13 states in the USA, and Canadian provinces, covering more than 105,000 roadway miles (169,000km).

Designed to address transportation mobility and safety challenges, iPeMS is the industry leader in performance measurement software, allowing agencies to manage, measure and optimize complex transportation networks. Iteris has developed the iPeMS platform to provide:

Reliability measurement of the transportation network; Benefit/cost analysis of delay and congestion to the entire network; Project evaluation using before and after analytics; Weather visualization in conjunction with traffic; Predictive and actionable information; Integrated Corridor Management (ICM) performance measurement; Third-party traffic data ingestion and processing; Bottleneck reporting and visualization; Comprehensive freeway data fusion in real-time; High occupancy vehicle (HOV) or Express Lane analysis; Integrated traffic and signal measurements; Detailed analysis of control modifications; Bluetooth sensor management polling and performance measure computations; Multimodal data collection and integration.

Over the last 12 months, Iteris has added significant new analytics features to iPeMS, including:

Real-time bottleneck detection for linear and branching bottlenecks; Animation tools for historical data analysis; Connected Citizens support for Waze incident analysis; Implementation of a dynamic MAP-21 dashboard to support required federal performance measurement.

The software also includes features that measure the financial and economic impact of congestion and delay. Additionally, Iteris has refactored the iPeMS database and interface layer to deliver the application on a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) basis. This has reduced the time and effort to deploy iPeMS, as well as enabled Iteris to offer distinct product tiers based on the different needs of its customers.

“We are pleased with the strong customer response to our offering of the industry’s most sophisticated performance analytics on a fully SaaS basis,” said Ramin Massoumi, senior vice president and general manager of transportation systems at Iteris.

“iPeMS enables transportation organizations to make smarter operational decisions for multiple modes of mobility and, also, serves as a powerful platform to analyze and monitor connected and autonomous vehicle information. Since we began refactoring the iPeMS application architecture for SaaS delivery a year ago, we have nearly doubled our municipal customer deployments.”
