My goal: I want to reduce the time pedestrians spend waiting at pedestrian crossing. I think there are intersections where pedestrians needlessly wait.
NSW uses a system called SCATS to control traffic light timings, as described in https://www.rms.nsw.gov.au/business-industry/partners-suppliers/documents/technical-manuals/rtatc106b.pdf . Each intersection has a “personality”, which is the logic/rules engine that controls when movements/phases occur. These personalities are flexible, but some are standardised, as described in https://www.rms.nsw.gov.au/documents/business-industry/partners-and-suppliers/guidelines/complementary-traffic-material/tstn021-tables.pdf .
I plan to take this data, and OpenStreetMap, and write a tool to find intersections that have inefficient tables/personalities, then propose that the personalities be updated.
Please could the SCATS personalities be made open data?
