ZeroTraffic's involvement in the field of Intelligent Transportation Systems began with the founding of a predecessor company in 1981, which employed the initial ZeroTraffic employees. Our very first project was the implementation of intelligent traffic signal control software for the former Metro Toronto Traffic Control Centre (MTTCC). We continued to be involved in the implementation and post-delivery support for this system throughout the 1980s and into the 1990s.

In the early 1990s, MTTCC awarded the staff at ZeroTraffic the Central MUX Integration (CMI) project. This program had the objective of integrating a legacy multiplexer and the traffic cell software previously developed by ZeroTraffic onto a new QNX-based platform. The software consisted of three main components - the Systems Software, CMUX Emulator and Traffic Task. This software was delivered to MTTCC in 1993.

Further work for MTTCC followed, including a rework of the Metro Transportation's plan change system, a communication reconfiguration project, and a requirements analysis and feasibility study for the proposed Traffic Signal Control System. In the mid 1990s, ZeroTraffic's core team performed an upgrade of the Metro Transportation Traffic Signal Control System (TSCS) for Metro Toronto Transportation.

From 2005 to 2011, ZeroTraffic's experience include actively involved in the development of the Ontario Ministry of Transportation's Next Generation COMPASS System (NGCS). The NGCS replace the existing infrastructure in the COMPASS Traffic Operations Centres (TOCs) which has been in operation since 1991. The COMPASS system is the freeway traffic management system for all the 400-series freeways in the Province of Ontario, including Highway 401, which includes the busiest stretch of highway in North America.

Our chief engineers delivered to MTO in 2015 a light version of NGCS which can be deployed within smaller jurisdictions and have been supporting MTO in the maintenance, upgrades and roll-out of the ITS software.

    Stuart Berkowitz, CEO and President

    Prior to Zerotraffic, Stuart founded Array Systems Computing Inc. while he was a Ph.D. student at the University of Toronto, in 1981. He received a BSc in Computer Science from Cornell University in 1975, and achieved a MS in Mathematics from the University of Illinois in 1976. He has written several papers and articles in mathematics and new technologies. He devised the fastest parallel method for inverting a matrix or computing the determinant. He has two patents.

    He founded, operated and sold Array Telecom Inc, specializing in Voice Over Internet Protocol, to Comdial in 1998 and VoiceGenie Technologies Inc, a Voice XML company, to Alcatel in 2006. VoiceGenie had number one North American market share in 2004 according to the Gartner Group. These spin out efforts capitalized on promising technologies pioneered by Array Systems Computing Inc. He is planning on other spinouts. Stuart was an active member of the Young Presidents Organization and was on the board of the World Presidents Organization in Toronto. In 1994 and again in 1995, he was honoured as one of the Top 100 Ontario Entrepreneurs.
