This report documented current activities amongst road agencies in Australia on the SCATS/STREAMS interface through the SCATS Intelligent Transport System (ITS) Port, and identified a set of 26 functional requirements for this interface to guide the development of applications that makes use of the data through this ITS Port. The RMS licensing requirements in using the data from the ITS Port and the SCATS development kit were also clarified. A third party software/firmware developer will be able to deal with both its client road agency and RMS on matters that involve the use of both SCATS and the data through the ITS Port. The functional requirements compiled in this report show the roadmap for the on-going development and application of the SCATS/STREAMS interface. When all of the proposed requirements are implemented in both systems, a powerful ITS platform will be available to road agencies to improve the productivity and reliability of the road network in moving people and goods.
