What is SCOOT?
SCOOT is the world's leading adaptive traffic control system.
It coordinates the operation of all the traffic signals in an area to give good progression to vehicles through the network.
Whilst coordinating all the signals, it responds intelligently and continuously as traffic flow changes and fluctuates throughout the day. It removes the dependence of less sophisticated systems on signal plans, which have to be expensively updated.
For an outline on how SCOOT works, please see the "How"
information in this section. More detail is provided in the
"How" information within the technical section.
The results section details the measured benefits of SCOOT from sites around the world.
