Aldis Now GRIDSMART Technologies

After a successful year in both product development and sales, transportation systems specialist Aldis has changed its name to GRIDSMART Technologies, which it says more accurately reflects the company’s goals, product line and identity.

GRIDSMART Technologies developed the GRIDSMART System, a tracking-based vision solution for actuation and data collection at intersections and highways.  The system uses a single camera with an ultra-wide angle lens to track all movement in its field of view, which allows for real-time management of intersections, including tracking cars, trucks, bicycles and pedestrians while recording turning movements, vehicle counts, types of vehicles and pedestrians.

“First and foremost, we decided to change the name to GRIDSMART to accentuate our true identify of ‘Traffic Control Freaks’, said William Malkes, founder and CEO.  “As our technology continues to evolve, we believe that Aldis does not accurately describe the world’s only single-camera, tracking-based vision solution for traffic management control.”
