Audi cars “will Communicate to traffic lights”

Audi is introducing technology that will allow its cars to communicate with traffic lights, the manufacturer has announced.

Audi’s Traffic light information system offers a first: the ability to tell you when the stoplight is going to change from red to green.

It will tell drivers when lights are due to turn green and when they will not make it before a light turns red.

It was meant to make driving less stressful and convenient, rather than as a safety feature.

According to Audi, the “vehicle-to-infrastructure” or “V-to-I” technology has been introduced in A4 models built after 1 June this year and will be put into some Q7 models next year.

The A4 will be the first one to have V-I tech.

Audi’s system allows the vehicle to display a countdown before a red light turns to green. Knowing how much time one has before the light changes to green will relieve much of the anxiety of waiting.

The countdown will also tell drivers when they are not going to be able to make an approaching light before it turns red, thereby signalling that the driver should start to brake.

Another possible eventual use is that traffic signals could advise the vehicle to keep to a certain speed in order to match the flow of traffic lights, Audi executives said.

They need to see a substantial investment in infrastructure here in the UK to make such technologies workable.
