Study quantifies SCATS benefits

A one-day study of Sydney Coordinated Adaptive Traffic System (SCATS) in Australia has shown that the system has the potential to save millions of dollars as well as benefit the environment. The system is an alternative to semi-adaptive traffic control. The study showed the value SCATS delivers to road stakeholders in terms of environment, transportation, and economics. SCATS was shown to reduce travel times and traffic stops, which will lead to a reduction in emissions, which, in turn, will lead to cost savings. The results of the study show SCATS to be a sophisticated system that will deliver significant value to road networks stakeholders.
