SCOOT

 

(Split Cycle Offset Optimisation Technique)

Product description:

SCOOT is the world leading adaptive signal 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. Many benefits are obtained from the installation of an effective Urban Traffic Control system utilising SCOOT, both reducing congestion and maximising efficiency which in turn is beneficial to the local environment and economy.
