Soon, a car that makes stopping at traffic lights history
Wellington: A car maker from Germany is developing a technology that calculates the amount of time before an upcoming set of traffic lights turn red, and tell driver the ideal speed needed to navigate roads and intersections.
Audi in Germany has joined forces with Berlin authorities in a trial that taps into the city`s central traffic management system, Stuff.co.nz reported.
Audi Germany technology and innovation spokesman, Tim Frozek , said that their car is linked wirelessly to the central computer of the city of Berlin, and every second they get a ping from the computer telling them about the status of the traffic lights.
He said that they transfer that info into graphics on the driver information display giving them two options, on one hand they have the possibility to let them know how long the red phase of the traffic light will last, and in the other they tell them about the speed they should use to reach next green light.
Audi has received strong interest in the technology from the US and other countries abroad, meanwhile, BMW is also trialling a similar program for its new vehicles.
