New Architecture Merges Connected Vehicle Architecture with
Intelligent Transportation Systems Framework to Assure Regulatory
SANTA ANA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jul. 12, 2017--
Inc. (NASDAQ: ITI), the global leader in applied informatics for
transportation and agriculture, announced that the USDOT's Intelligent
Transportation Systems (ITS) Joint Program Office has released the
Iteris-led updated version of the ITS National Reference Architecture
that fully incorporates the connected vehicle capabilities from the
Connected Vehicle Reference Implementation Architecture (CVRIA) into the
Architecture Reference for Cooperative and Intelligent Transportation (ARC-IT).
Thus, both architectures have been completely replaced by ARC-IT, which
will provide a unifying framework that covers ITS comprehensively,
including Connected Vehicle and traditional infrastructure ITS
“Transportation is in the midst of a substantial shift, as vehicle
connectivity and autonomy is explored,” said Ramin Massoumi, senior vice
president and general manager of Transportation Systems at Iteris.
“Combining the architectures provides one reference architecture for all
of ITS in the United States with more breadth and depth than was
Iteris has led the development and evolution of National ITS
Architecture for over 20 years, and initiated the CVRIA in 2012.
Combining the two architectures into ARC-IT will streamline the vehicle
to infrastructure communications guidelines as transportation use
changes become more prevalent. Having a reliable framework can also
streamline funding, leading to repeatable deployments.
website will remain online through the life of the USDOT’s Connected
Vehicle pilots, to serve as a reference for those projects. The
architecture team next will be offering a pair of public workshops,
where users can explore ARC-IT and its updated software tools (RAD-IT,
SET-IT) in detail.
