THE ICONIC
BELL CAMERA

A single fisheye camera providing what others can’t: a full intersection view, including the center where cars, trucks, motorcycles, bicycles, and pedestrians actually cross paths.

Industry Pioneers

Horizon to Horizon Vision Tracking

GRIDSMART pioneered horizon to horizon vision tracking to actuate intersections with the iconic Bell Camera, a single fisheye camera providing what others can’t: a full intersection view, including the center where cars, trucks, motorcycles and scooters, bicycles, and pedestrians actually cross paths. The horizon to horizon approach offers highly accurate turn counts, unmatched situational awareness, views and functionality from the center of the intersection, and unobstructed incident management views.

The camera’s virtual pan-tilt-zoom enables users to set up multiple views and adjust those anytime as needed without impacting performance. The aesthetically pleasing, environmentally conducive bell shape of the Camera isn’t just for looks. The iconic Bell Camera shape protects the lens by mitigating sun glare and adverse weather conditions while decreasing annual maintenance.
