Mobility infrastructure management specialist Iteris has launched a 1080p HD video and four-dimensional (4D) radar sensor with integrated AI. The new Vantage Apex sensor is designed for monitoring smart intersections and can provide information to both traffic management centres and to vehicles.

Vantage Apex identifies objects using Iteris’ AI video analytics, image library, GPU/CPU-based computing, machine learning and neural network algorithms. It classifies different vehicle types and vulnerable road users, such as pedestrians and cyclists.

HD video streaming using 1080p cameras can be viewed at traffic management centres (TMCs) or remotely on mobile devices via the Iteris Video Viewer™ app.

Using forward-fire radar technology, Vantage Apex 4D/HD radar technology has a field of view exceeding 600 feet, and enables decision-zone safety functions, collision avoidance and lane-by-lane detection.

Vantage Apex is connected vehicle ready and can provide infrastructure data through vehicle-to-everything (V2X) communications to connected and automated vehicles (CAVs), including through Iteris’ BlueTOAD Spectra CV.

Vantage Apex is compatible with VantageCare – Iteris’ cloud-enabled detection health monitoring managed service – as well as Iteris’ ClearGuide SPM and VantageLive!, and other third-party web and mobile-based traffic measurement applications.

“We are thrilled to announce the launch of Vantage Apex, the industry’s first 1080p HD video and 4D radar sensor with integrated AI algorithms,” said Todd Kreter, senior vice president and general manager, Advanced Sensor Technologies at Iteris. “With the addition of Vantage Apex to Iteris’ market-leading portfolio of smart sensors, transportation agencies now have access to unmatched detection and tracking accuracy of vehicles, pedestrians and cyclists, as well as HD video display for TMC monitoring to achieve their goals of improving safety, mobility and sustainability throughout complex transportation networks.”
