Multi-Year Agreement Will Combine Traffic Data from Both Companies to Deliver Industry-Leading Mobility Intelligence Solutions to Existing Customers and New Markets
New agreement addresses the pandemic “new normal” for returning traffic volume but increased traffic variability.
Combination of enhanced traffic incident data from TTWN and Iteris, and integration of Iteris traffic flow enables new mobility insights for TTWN’s broadcast media clients.
- Deal reflects growing demand from more markets for accurate, actionable traffic information from public transportation agencies, radio and TV broadcasters, automotive OEMs, logistics operations, insurance providers, construction firms and non-traditional market sectors.
SANTA ANA, Calif. & NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–$ITI #IoT—Iteris, Inc. (NASDAQ: ITI), the world’s trusted technology ecosystem for smart mobility infrastructure management, and Total Traffic & Weather Network (TTWN), the iHeartMedia-owned leading provider of traffic, transit and weather information in the United States, today announced the expansion of their nationwide partnership to deliver the most comprehensive mobility intelligence solutions available to public-sector and commercial enterprise customers throughout the U.S.
As part of the expanded multi-year partnership, TTWN will broaden its coverage of award-winning, real-time traffic incident data provided to Iteris, which is aggregated and verified by a team of 600-plus traveler information experts nationwide. TTWN’s traffic incident data will be integrated in Iteris’ ClearMobility™ Cloud, which already captures over 200 sources of road closure, construction and other traffic impact data. The integration will result in the industry’s most comprehensive traffic incident data available.
Enabled by the ClearMobility Cloud, Iteris’ mobility data management engine, application programming interface (API) framework and microservices ecosystem, this data integration will support TTWN’s expansion into new vertical markets, including local, regional, state and federal transportation agencies, construction firms, insurance companies, fleet operators, and delivery companies.
The new agreement enables Iteris to expand its long-term relationship with TTWN in support of its network of radio and TV broadcast customers and automotive OEMs which rely on TTWN’s commuter-focused traveler information to determine the safest and most efficient routes.
The expanded partnership coincides with the return of traffic congestion. In many markets traffic is back to pre-pandemic levels, but peak congestion times have shifted and occur at much more variable times. This “new normal” is driving an increased need for accurate, comprehensive data on traffic flows and incidents, which this expanded partnership delivers.
“We are excited to extend and expand our partnership with Total Traffic & Weather Network to provide radio and television broadcasting partners, and automotive OEMs throughout the United States with real-time traffic incident and flow information as they embark on their daily journeys,” said Al McGowan, Senior Vice President, Strategic Business Development at Iteris.
“Traffic is back, but typical traffic patterns have changed. This extension of our collaboration with Iteris recognizes the pandemic new normal for traffic variability. By combining our traffic incident and flow data, we are able to provide the marketplace with an enhanced, best-in-class mobility intelligence solution,” said Kevin Loftus, Senior Vice President, Operations for TTWN.
