On May 9, regional leaders unveiled the 511 San Diego mobile application– the only app of its kind in the nation that offers commuters info about all things traffic, including real-time traffic alerts and traffic camera views, FasTrak tolling prices, and Metropolitan Transit System (MTS) bus schedules and fare prices. Through the app, users can find advance notifications of conditions that cause traffic jams, such as lane closures or stalled vehicles, and alternate routes to get around traffic incidents. The text-to-speech function of the app allows users to receive the information without looking at their smartphone screens. (Screen shots of the app are available under the Downloads section of this web page.)
“People who download the 511 San Diego app, in effect, will have a crystal ball for traffic information,“ SANDAG Second Vice Chair and Poway Mayor Don Higginson said. “For the first time, commuters now have access to integrated traffic data that was previously fragmented and available only to traffic operations managers.”
The I-15 portion of the app leverages the integration of real-time traffic information from multiple government sources and travel modes, such as freeway ramp meters, road sensors, and street traffic signals, to generate travel time predictions. These forecasts are based on sophisticated algorithms.
In 2010, the U.S. Department of Transportation selected the San Diego region as one of two ICM pilot sites in the nation (the other is Dallas, Texas).

Iteris has won a $580,000 contract for the final integration phase of the San Mateo Smart Corridor Program, continuing a collaboration of 13 agencies and cities design, deploy and integrate ITS solutions and strategies along the US-101 corridor in the county.
Iteris is responsible for the overall network design from a logical and physical perspective as well as the development and execution of system test plans to ensure all performance elements meet or exceed the system requirements. At the successful conclusion of subsystem testing, Iteris will lead overall system testing to ensure the system operates as an integrated system focused on providing ICM strategies in response to incidents and nonrecurring congestion along the US-101 corridor.
