SCATS stands for "Sydney Coordinated Adaptive Traffic System". SCATS is an area or urban traffic control (UTC) system. SCATS primarily manages the dynamic (on-line, real-time) timing of signal phases at traffic signals, meaning that it tries to find the best phasing (i.e. cycle times, phase splits and offsets) for the current traffic situation (for individual intersections as well as for the whole network). These adaptive actions are done automatically based on data derived from loop detectors or other road traffic sensors, but may also be adapted by human traffic controllers who observe the whole system.

SCATS is a product of the RTA New South Wales, Australia, and was developed in and for the Sydney road network. Since its original development, SCATS has been installed in over 100 cities throughout the world. Countries where SCATS has been installed include Australia, New Zealand (Auckland and other cities), China, Poland and the Republic of Ireland.
