Audi networks with traffic lights in the USA

Audi networks with traffic lights in the USA
“Time-to-Green”: In the Audi virtual cockpit or head-up display, drivers see whether they will reach the next light on green while traveling within the permitted speed limit.
  • Traffic Light Information is the first true Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (V2I) service by an automobile brand
  • The service starts up with variations on the Audi A4 and Q7 in Las Vegas
  • Networking is essential for autonomous driving in cities 

If you know in advance when a traffic light will switch from red to green, your driving is more relaxed and efficient. Audi is the first automobile brand to connect the car to the city infrastructure – an important step towards autonomous driving. In Las Vegas, starting immediately, the Audi A4 and Q7 models can display traffic-light phases directly in the car. Further U.S. cities will follow, and introduction of the system is planned in Europe. Traffic Light Information optimizes traffic flow, saves valuable time and reduces environmental impact.
