RTA and NICTA: Innovating on Successful Traffic Management
The Roads and Traffic Authority of NSW (RTA) and NICTA are engaged in a successful, ongoing research collaboration. RTA continues to develop the SCATS adaptive traffic control system working with NICTA to implement some of the innovations emerging from the RTA/NICTA Smart Transport and Roads initiative. SCATS is one of the most widely used and successful traffic control systems, with installations in 142 cities across 25 countries. NICTA is the Australian Governmentâ€™s Centre for Excellence for research into Information and Communications Technology. The collaboration is allowing RTA and NICTA to look at measures for improving traffic control in specific, difficult situations.
