Audi Traffic Light Assist (video)

Audi Traffic Light Assist

Audi is showing off their latest in-car technology, their Traffic Light Assist, which promises to help drivers make every green light while driving. So here’s on it works – the system uses live and predictive data that’s beamed into the car’s navigation unit via onboard Wi-Fi, so it doesn’t need a camera to alert you of a light change. It takes local data that provides info about traffic light patterns, and the in-car system then uses that data and the motion of the vehicle to predict how long it’ll take for the green light to turn red.

The system shows a traffic light icon on the dash with a countdown timer that tells drivers how long it’ll be before the light changes from green to red. It can also correct for changing lanes or changing from a straight-through traffic lane to a left-lane turn signal. Also, the start/stop system is integrated into the software so it will restart the engine with a few seconds to go before the light changes to green so you’ll be on your way in no time. Audi showed off a trial run of the system in an A6 sedan at CES 2014.  The Traffic Light Assist is still in beta form, but Audi promises to deliver this technology soon.
