Audi networks with traffic lights in Europe

Audi networks with traffic lights in Europe
  • Audi Traffic Light Information begins this year in Ingolstadt
  • Andre Hainzlmaier, head of Smart City Development: “Audi customers will feel more relaxed. Traffic will flow better”
  • GLOSA speed recommendation increases the probability of a “green wave”

Audi is introducing the vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) service “Traffic Light Information” to Europe. From July Audi will network new models with the traffic lights in Ingolstadt/Germany; further European cities will follow from 2020 onwards. Then cars will be more likely to catch a “green wave” in the city: Audi drivers will see in the cockpit what speed is required to reach the next traffic light on green. If that is not possible within the permitted speed limit, there will be a countdown to the next green phase. Driving in cities will thus become more relaxed and efficient. In the USA, Audi customers have already been using this service since late 2016. Audi is the first manufacturer worldwide to network its series-production models with traffic lights in cities.
