“We believe this strategic acquisition will greatly enhance our ability to offer innovative, comprehensive and adaptive traffic management solutions,” said Markus Schlitt, CEO of Siemens Mobility Intelligent Traffic Systems. “This important association will allow us access to a worldwide base of installed traffic controllers and will position Siemens Mobility to become an established ITS player in the fast-growing APAC region, further increasing our market share for adaptive traffic management systems.”
SCATS® accounts for one third of the adaptive traffic control systems globally with installations in around 190 cities in 28 countries. With around 80% of the installations located in APAC, it is the predominant traffic control system in the region. The system is owned by Transport for New South Wales, Australia.
In addition to manufacturing SCATS®-compliant traffic signal controllers for the world market, ATC provides a variety of services such as traffic signal design, traffic engineering, traffic management consulting as well as training.
If the acquisition is approved by the authorities, ATC will be managed as a legally independent company under the roof of the Intelligent Traffic Systems business unit within Siemens Mobility.
