Iteris Presents “Big Data Analytics for Congestion Management Programs” Webinar on Wednesday, January 28, 2015 at 11 a.m. PST
Traditionally, transportation system performance and congestion monitoring has been limited to using floating car surveys and traffic count data. Data from these conventional methods covered a limited number of observations. With technological advancements, massive traffic data from infrastructure sensors and vehicle probes have become increasingly available. This new and rich data has made way for Big Data analytics as an emerging method for performing state of the system monitoring.   

Join us on Wednesday, January 28, 2015 at 11:00 AM (PST) to learn more about how Iteris can help you leverage Big Data for your Congestion Management Program (CMP), presented by Rob Hranac, Vice President, Transportation Analytics at Iteris.
