Sydney Coordinated Adaptive Traffic System (SCATS) collects traffic volume data using detectors at traffic signals (located near stop lines). SCATS data is captured 24 hours a day (midnight to midnight). Data is available at all signalised intersections (including pelican/puffin crossings) across the state. This data can be used to measure traffic volume including lane and/or turning counts (where available).
Sample 2: Column - Separate Row below shows one (1) day count for two (2) detectors (named as approaches) by 60 minute (hourly) time intervals. Here the detectors are listed separately below each other and includes the traffic volume totals for each detector and a sub total column for each detector. This output is provided in text file format.
Table - Standard
Traffic consultancies may find this output suitable for their use. Traffic volume data outputs can be provided in intervals of 5, 15, 30 or 60 minutes.
The sample SCATS Map below shows the intersection of Stirling Hwy/Broadway/Hampden Rd (Intersection TCS 66). The following points will assist users in understanding a SCATS Map:
