Thailand Develops Web Apps to Reap Rewards of GRIDSMART’s Open API

Traveling half-way around the world to share his insight into GRIDSMART’s Application Program Interface (API), Chalunvuth Nutayakul (JJ), managing director of New Trend Development, discussed his company’s work with the Kingdom of Thailand’s transportation system.

JJ spoke last year about his work with GRIDSMART at INTERSECT15, where he discussed congestion mitigation in Thailand, using the API to create real-time traffic gridlock maps and disseminating that information through local media.

Today, JJ showed attendees how he developed web apps using the GRIDSMART API to highlight major congestion areas while incorporating additional installations and data for a broader transportation snapshot.

“GRIDSMART data is limitless, and this is just the tip of the iceberg,” he said. “The use of these systems is only limited by our imagination and I’m so excited to be able to make traffic more efficient in my home country. GRIDSMART technology is truly making a difference.”
