ENCOM WIRELESS11:00-11:15

For over 30 years, ENCOM Wireless has been delivering wireless data solutions to municipal and industrial customers across North America. Our innovative wireless solutions enable our customers to CONNECT EVERYTHING – empowering advanced applications and reducing costs. Founded in Calgary, Alberta Canada, Encom Wireless Data Solutions has been the leading industry leader. Recently the new office in Addison, TX has opened to help expand our scope and influence in the wireless world.

PEXCO | 11:15-11:30

The protocol for testing surface-mounted channelizer posts in the United States has evolved considerably over the past thirty years as innovations have led to superior levels of impact resistance. Pexco will present a brief history of significant developments in the manufacture of these high-performance channelizer posts/flexible bollards, the subsequent evolution of evaluation methods used by State road authorities, and the implementation of new standards in support of innovative applications on highways across the USA.

STINSON ITS | 11:30-11:45

Stinson ITS offers the Canadian market a wide variety of innovative ITS products.  In this showcase we will review a number of our favorites - Miovision’s AI based TrafficLink product for smart intersections, Tapco’s line of intelligent crosswalks and warning systems, Houston Radar’s cutting edge non-intrusive traffic count stations. 

In addition to product distribution we offer a wide range of services including design consultation, system integration, project management and long term maintenance and installation services.  We are big advocates of the “as a service” (aaS) model for ITS solutions, where turnkey solutions are provided along with long-term operation and maintenance services. 

A key component of a smart city is the need for open data, as such you’ll find almost every product we sell supports open data and third party integration.  We’d love to discuss these ideas with you further and hope to see you at the show!

LED ROADWAY LIGHTING | 11:45-12:00

LED Roadway Lighting is showcasing its radar sensor platform for streetlights. The Nova Scotia Community College will present results of testing this sensor for counting vehicle and pedestrian movements and speed.

As a distributed network in urban areas, radar on street lights represents an opportunity to collect data useful for roadway classification, determining required lighting levels, and assessing traffic volume and speed.

AGILEASSETS | 15:15-15:30

AgileAssets is the leading global provider of integrated infrastructure asset management software. Our technologies optimize the decision-making process, enabling clients to more effectively manage and maintain their transportation assets.

ADS CANADA | 15:30-15:45

ADS Canada: Your Total Solutions Provider. At ADS Canada, we develop state-of-the-art products and services that help solve storm water management and sanitary sewer challenges, while setting industry-wide standards for quality, durability and performance.

 

TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 24

INTERNATIONAL ROAD DYNAMICS INC. | 10:00-10:15

International Road Dynamics Inc. (IRD) is showcasing its Tire Anomaly and Classification System (TACS™). TACS is an advanced screening technology helping agencies identify vehicles with potentially dangerous tire anomalies before accidents occur. TACS measures the tire-to-road contact patch and identifies unsafe tires including flat, missing, and mismatched tires on dual tire assemblies. Tire anomalies and damaged tires create preventable costs such as poor fuel economy, and pavement damage.

Agencies in Oklahoma integrated TACS into their commercial vehicle e-screening systems, which signal trucks identified with tire problems to report for inspection. They verify the anomalies and verify tire problems, placing unsafe vehicle out of service. TACS helps agencies efficiently ensure road safety through an automated screening system. Agencies seeking to reduce the risk of catastrophic tire failures will benefit from adopting tire anomaly screening. The demonstration will include the TACS video and drone footage of the overall commercial vehicle e-screening system.

URBAN ASPECT INC. | 10:15-10:30

Urban Aspect Inc. specialises in innovative Intelligent Traffic Solutions for roads, highways, and bridges. We source products from all around the globe to bring Canada the latest and most up to date traffic safety technology.

BRISK SYNERGIES | 15:15-15:30

Join Brisk Synergies to learn how automated surrogate safety analysis can proactively examine road user behaviour to predict collision risk between pedestrians, cyclists and motor vehicles. 

The presentation will provide participants with an overview of the challenges cities and engineering firms have using traditional collision studies to evaluate safety of road users. Newer data collection and analysis technologies are now evolving which blend computer vision and surrogate safety analyses to perform cross-sectional or before-after studies on temporary traffic cameras and continuous real-time video conflict analysis on permanent traffic cameras.

Client case studies will be discussed to provide context on how both city transportation engineers and engineering firms are using this solution to gain effective and immediate insights to measure the safety performance of interventions and find the most dangerous locations in their city network.

TITAN ENVIRONMENTAL CONTAINMENT | 15:30-15:45

Join Titan as we showcase the newest addition to our product line, Concrete Canvas®, a revolutionary new construction material used as an alternative to conventional concrete. Coined as ‘Concrete on a Roll’, Concrete Canvas® allows for concrete construction without the need for plant or mixing equipment—simply unroll and hydrate for quick and easy installation. Its low carbon technology also makes Concrete Canvas® an eco-friendly choice. See it in application in our large scale model, and learn more as we discuss the technical properties of this product with a focus on applications relevant to the transportation sector and project case studies.
