That product shared its name with the company, “ECONOLITE.” Since then, Econolite has never stopped innovating and now is leading the North American ITS market for years with constant growth and a superior product offering: 
 
Traffic hardware and detection, traffic monitoring, and field services to reduce travel time and emissions, ease congestion, enhance transit operations, and provide safer mobility.
