SCOOT MMX (SCOOT Multi Modal 2010)

The SCOOT Urban Traffic Control system is now operating in over 250 cities and towns worldwide. Since the first system was installed there has been a continuous program of research and development to provide new facilities which take into account new technology and policies, and meet the multimodal requirements of the traffic manager. Recent releases have incorporated many new features aimed at providing priority to public transport and in the last release SCOOT MC3 new strategies to provide benefit to pedestrians at pedestrian crossings were included. In this new version, SCOOT MMX, the multimodal theme is continued with additional facilities to prioritize pedestrians at junctions, a significant update and enhancement of emissions estimates as well as features to improve operation during low flow periods. The latter includes cycle time independence, allowing individual junctions to operate at their optimal cycle time when it is more beneficial than being coordinated and the introduction of 'ghost‘ stages to reduce cycle times when demand dependent stages are infrequently called.
