Beginning this year, Iteris will integrate SEI’s advanced pedestrian detection sensor, which utilizes advanced radar technology to detect pedestrians with remarkable accuracy, into the Iteris ClearMobility® Platform. In addition to its exceptionally accurate detection capability, this highly sophisticated solution will provide valuable, granular pedestrian data that will enhance Iteris’ uniquely curated mobility data set.

“We are thrilled to partner with Iteris to bring our innovative pedestrian detection sensor to the U.S. market. This technical and commercial collaboration with Iteris marks a significant milestone for us, as we are committed to enhancing safety standards not only within Japan, but internationally as well,” said Hitoshi Hirata, General Manager of Systems & Electronics Division of Sumitomo Electric. “By leveraging Iteris’ extensive market expertise and distribution network, we are confident that integrating our advanced pedestrian detection sensor into the ClearMobility Platform will set a new benchmark for safety and reliability for both American pedestrians and drivers."

Given the world’s busiest pedestrian crossings exist in Japan, SEI developed the world’s most advanced pedestrian detection sensor. Launched in 2017, the Sumitomo pedestrian detection sensor is currently operating in five regions in Japan. It has been instrumental in reducing traffic incidents, particularly among vulnerable populations such as the elderly. This makes it a perfect addition to the U.S. market, which has seen an increase in pedestrian fatalities since 2009—a trend the transportation industry and federal government among others are working to reverse.

"We are deeply committed to enhancing the safety and efficiency of our nation’s transportation systems," said Joe Bergera, CEO of Iteris. "Sumitomo's decision to collaborate with Iteris is a testament to our shared vision for a safer, smarter mobility future. Their sensor will complement our market-leading detection portfolio perfectly, continuing to strengthen the already robust capabilities of the ClearMobility Platform."

Iteris’ comprehensive suite of advanced and reliable detection solutions are part of Iteris’ ClearMobility Platform, the world’s most complete solution to continuously monitor, visualize and optimize mobility infrastructure. It applies cloud computing, artificial intelligence, advanced sensors, advisory services and managed services to help ensure roads are safe, travel is efficient, and communities thrive.
