Stocks in this article: ITI

Iteris, Inc. (NYSE Amex: ITI), the leader in intelligent traffic management information solutions, has been awarded the prime contract by the Abu Dhabi Department of Transport (DoT) for the design, implementation, operation and maintenance of the first integrated travel information and navigation services (i-TINS) system in the Middle East. The contract is valued at $2.45 million.

Design and implementation commences immediately, followed by a 24-month operations and maintenance agreement. The system is expected to be operational by early 2013. Iteris will manage this project from its Abu Dhabi office with support from its U.S.‐based staff.

Iteris will lead a team of international Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) professionals from firms that include TrafQuest, Open Roads Consulting, and Mygistics. The team will focus on delivering a landmark traveler information system, along with establishing guidelines and standards for accuracy and reliability of travel status and real-time routing options for both private users and DoT operations staff. Accomplishing these objectives requires expertise in traffic engineering, traveler information applications, central system software, traffic modeling, performance management, GIS, telematics and in-vehicle systems, system implementation, and hands-on operations.

“We are very pleased to embark on the first advanced multi-modal traveler information system in the MENA Region,” said Engineer Salah Al-Marzouqi, Abu Dhabi’s DoT ITS Division Director. “This project will provide transport network users dynamic information relating to congestion, prevailing conditions, incidents, route guidance and travel times, among others, via the web, smart phones and in-car navigation devices. The Iteris team won this tender based on their qualifications to provide an innovative solution for supporting our commitment to improve transport in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi.”

Abbas Mohaddes, president and CEO of Iteris, commented: “We are honored to have been selected by Abu Dhabi DoT for this prestigious program. This project provides us with an excellent platform to provide our services and expertise in the United Arab Emirates and Middle East, enabling us to broaden our international experience in traveler information systems. We look forward to assisting Abu Dhabi DoT in tailoring our Advanced Traveler Information System offerings to their needs and providing a state-of-the-art traveler information resource to Abu Dhabi residents and travelers.”
