Discovery and more

North Line is always on the move.

North Line will represent the intelligent traffic sector at Discovery, the Ontario Centres of Excellence (OCE) showcase of leading-edge technologies, best practices, and research. We’re thrilled to be invited to participate in the B2G sessions while we’re there. You can find us between sessions throughout the conference, April 30 and May 1 in Toronto, Ontario.

On May 3, we’re off to Research Day at Durham College. North Line is a longstanding industry partner of the Oshawa, Ontario college, where their Office of Research Services, Innovation, and Entrepreneurship (ORSIE) is enabling technologies of the future–like those in North Line solutions. (We wrote about a recent project with their applied research team for Earth Day.) We’re looking forward to seeing what ORSIE has been up to.

Are you attending the Ontario Traffic Council (OTC) conference? We’re bringing our unique, cloud-based solutions to the supplier showcase. You’ll want to see the North Line AIMS, our Asset Inventory Management System, in live, simultaneous demonstration on computer, tablet, and mobile devices. The AIMS is the ideal tool for your sidewalk priority indexes and capital projects, if you’re inspired by those sessions! The North Line FOX (radar) and North Line OWL (video) are your solutions for vehicle, cyclist, and pedestrian detection, including site selection and automated speed enforcement. You’ll be able to explore these and other solutions with us at the supplier showcase and throughout the conference, May 7 and 8 in Kingston, Ontario.

This summer, North Line is on tour through the provinces (and Whitehorse!) to meet with you. Do you want to see our solutions in action? Is there an issue we can troubleshoot or brainstorm with you? If you’d like to attend a session near you, or host a session in your community, let us know. We will release details here, in our events, and with #northlineontour on Twitter. You can also subscribe to updates.

You can always find North Line at our headquarters in Port Perry, Ontario.

UPDATE:

We’re starting our road trip in Edmonton, Alberta, with a stop at the Canadian Institute of Transportation Engineers (CITE) conference. From June 3 to 6, you can find North Line at Booth 7. Or, if you’re nearby, email us to arrange a session or meeting.

Earth Day, every day

Earth Day, every day

At North Line, we don't wait for Earth Day—or Earth Month—to think of the environment. But we will use this occasion to demonstrate our commitment to it.

In the last year, our research and development teams and collaborators have transformed our solutions with miniature Hybrid Energy Harvesters (HEHs) and smart sleep systems. This combination of energy generation and energy conservation results in fewer required re-charges and less waste.

Our vehicle, cyclist, and pedestrian detection solutions, the North Line OWL (video) and North Line FOX (radar), are available with this eco-friendly system, so they're ideal for your short- and long-term traffic studies and permanent placement.

 

North Line has continuous investment in research and development. Do you have an eco-friendly idea? Do you want to collaborate?

Work Zone Awareness Week

Work Zone Awareness Week

Work Zone Awareness Week encourages drivers and workers to exercise extra caution in work zones.

At North Line, safety is key to our everyday.

We find and offer the safe, effective solutions you need for work zones and beyond—and with our continuous investment in research and development, our solutions are the best of the best.

For work zones, we recommend traffic signs like the SafePace 600, a versatile, variable text sign that deftly combines radar and responsive text. Signs and other traffic calming solutions create safer roads, safer communities, and safer work zones.

Are you prepared to keep your work zones safe?

The next generation

For more than 30 years, you’ve known North Line as the Timothys—Bernie and Claire.

Today, as we announce their retirement, we ask you to join us in celebrating their accomplishments and wishing them well in whatever they tackle next.

North Line is still in the family, with daughter Shelley and the Sheehans—Jim, Kayleigh, and Matthew. We are proud to champion the legacies of Bernie and Claire.

We look forward to getting to know each of you, and your unique challenges, as we continue to provide the latest, most effective traffic detection solutions and systems that you expect from North Line.

For those of you who knew Bernie and Claire, you can read their personal thank you and goodbye. If you’d like to send them a note, please, email us and we’ll send it on! We know they’d love to hear from you.

To Bernie and Claire, and a happy new year!
