Santa Ana-based traffic-management software developer Iteris Inc. is collaborating with Qualcomm and Meritor WABCO to provide safety data for trucking fleets.

San Diego-based Qualcomm is a provider of integrated wireless systems for transportation and logistics companies. Meritor, headquartered in Michigan, develops braking systems, controls and safety systems for commercial vehicles.

Under the deal, Iteris' Lane Departure Warning systems, and Meritor's SmartTrac and OnGuard active-safety programs will capture data using Qualcomm's Mobile Computing Platform 100 and 200 series, an onboard fleet-management technology.

The comprehensive platform will provide a single point of access to review performance data on braking, stability control, distances and lane-departure warnings for one driver or an entire fleet.

The software will help fleet managers using Qualcomm's technology to identify risky driving behaviors and provide operators with proper training and skills.

“This agreement enables Iteris and Meritor WABCO to integrate best-in-class driver performance and safety data for fleets with Qualcomm’s industry-leading Mobile Computing Platform Series,” said Abbas Mohaddes, president and CEO of Iteris.

The local company's technology reduces traffic congestion and improves the safety of surface-transportation systems infrastructure. The company reported revenue of $15.7 million in the first quarter, which ended June 30.

“Iteris’ SafetyDirect is an ideal complement to Qualcomm’s extensive suite of safety services,” said Norm Ellis, vice president of sales, services and marketing for Qualcomm Enterprise Services. “Iteris and Meritor WABCO possess unique, high-value truck safety data, which can help further enhance the comprehensive safety profile for Qualcomm’s fleet customers."
