Transport for New South Wales in Australia is partnering with Accenture-owned software development firm Industrie&Co to help deliver the next generation state-owned Sydney coordinated adaptive traffic system (SCATS).
Australian website IT News reports the new partnership will see the pair work on new features for the real-time traffic management system, which was first introduced in 1975 to manage traffic light signal phasing and is now used in 28 countries worldwide.
TfNSW customer strategy and technology deputy secretary Joost de Kock told the website the partnership with Industrie&Co, which is the result of a “robust tender process”, would deliver the “next generation of SCATS”.
The project involves developing better integration with third-party sensors, machine learning-based prediction, more sophisticated analytics and a UI/UX refresh.
