ITS WC Day1 P5 Gridsmart Lauren Jochum gs2

GRIDSMART Technologies is here at the ITS World Congress to unveil a major new advancement for the world’s only single camera product for intersection actuation, data collection and situational awareness.

Visitors here in Bordeaux will get an exclusive opportunity to experience the GRIDSMART GS2, a powerful new 1-U processor, before it is released in 2016.

The GS2 adheres to the company philosophy of founder and CEO Bill Malkes – that everything about us should be simple, flexible and transparent.

“We believe your system should work for you and not the other way around,” says Malkes. “This is why we are control freaks in driving complexity from everything. GRIDSMART is installed in three hours or less, it is learned in 30 minutes. Why should anyone have to work to use a product they bought?” he adds. GRIDSMART uses a single camera with an ultra-wide angle lens to track all movement in its field of view, which allows for realtime management of intersections, including detecting cars, trucks, bicycles and pedestrians while recording turning movements, vehicle counts, and vehicle lengths. The system can even detect pedestrians or cyclists moving through crosswalks.

The GS2, which is field repairable without the need for tools, has been reduced in size by two-thirds from the original GRIDSMART Processor. It sports multiple USB 3.0 expansion ports for flexibility, and the intuitive LED front panel displays calls and light states for ultimate transparency. Another new addition to GS2 is a built-in Wi-Fi connection or a standard Ethernet connection.
