The World-Leading Adaptive Traffic Management System
Our sophisticated and intelligent traffic control system manages traffic according to complex algorithms and can adapt traffic signal timings to deal with unexpected conditions and minimise delays.
Intelligent traffic management:
SCATS® (Sydney Coordinated Adaptive Traffic System) is an adaptive urban traffic management system that synchronises traffic signals to optimise traffic flow across a whole city, region or corridor. SCATS is more than just a way of linking traffic signals to provide road management coordination, it’s a sophisticated traffic engineering system that allows you to implement complex, objective-oriented, traffic management strategies.
Its self-calibrating software minimises manual intervention, which can result in substantial operational cost savings.
SCATS has been continually developed for over 40 years and sold to 27 countries, delivering real and measurable reductions in road travel times and delays.
To use SCATS you need:
- A SCATS-compatible Traffic Signal Controller.
- A centralised computer system to manage all Traffic Signal Controllers.
- A reliable communications network for the centralised computer system to exchange data with all Traffic Signal Controllers in your city.
- Vehicle detectors at each intersection, usually in the form of loops in the road pavement.
SCATS is a truly intelligent traffic management system that considers all aspects of traffic control and can respond to the demands of the network in real time.
