Iteris Launches Vantage SmartSpan Video Detection for Span Wire Intersections

  Iteris Launches Vantage SmartSpan Video Detection for Span Wire

Business Wire

SANTA ANA, Calif. -- January 22, 2013

Iteris, Inc. (NYSE MKT: ITI), a leader in providing intelligent traffic
management information solutions, has launched SmartSpan^TM as a new product
addition to its Vantage® video detection product suite. Using proprietary
Dynamic Zone Stabilization (DZS) algorithms, SmartSpan provides accurate and
cost effective advance detection and stop-bar detection of vehicles at
intersections equipped with span wire mounted signal lights.

The new solution addresses the unmet needs of many traffic management agencies
that have not been able to cost-effectively deploy video vehicle detection.
This has traditionally required stable camera mounts that are only possible
with rigid traffic signal mast arms; however, SmartSpan can be mounted on the
same span wires holding the traffic signal without sacrificing detection

“SmartSpan finally provides traffic engineers a seamless way to combine the
benefits of video vehicle detection, traffic data collection, and intersection
surveillance for span wire equipped intersections,” said Abbas Mohaddes,
president and CEO of Iteris. “This product also creates a new sales
opportunity for us to provide video detection to an additional 55,000
signalized intersections – primarily in Eastern and Southern U.S. states –
where span wire intersections are routinely installed. Further, using our
proprietary DZS algorithms, we can provide video detection in locations that
are subject to high winds or vibration which can result in unwanted camera

SmartSpan builds on Iteris’ proven Vantage video vehicle detection technology
that has been deployed throughout North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia,
and the Middle East. Iteris is the market leader with more than 100,000 video
detection sensors operational worldwide. A global network of exclusive
distributors and direct sales offices provide local technical support and
training. SmartSpan ^ is available for immediate purchase and implementation.
