Audi's new tech makes traffic lights more tolerable

Audi is the first automaker to connect vehicles directly to the traffic management grid (V2I) with the new Traffic Light Information service via a partnership with the Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada.

    At the moment its not really a selling point unless you live in Nevada, but I guess if it rolls out to other areas, would be nice.

    I don't see this as very useful to the consumer it's mostly benefits the company. I find the best way to get the most lights is to do the speed limit.

    So that means no more having to brake and get to the line just before the light turns green

    I wish we'd use the same light system they have in the UK. When at a red light, a few seconds before the light turns green it will display both RED and YELLOW at the same time.

    Now every stop light is a make shift drag strip! Thanks Audi.

    Seattle and BMW I believe already have this.

    So they will know if your speeding and ticket u?

    Many issues with this that need to be sorted. I can see a positive though. I would know when to run a light even though its a mile ahead.

    The countdown is only good for cities where the lights only change based on timers…many cities in Canada use sensors placed in the ground (and traffic cameras) to change the light

    this is useless for the driver…what exactly will you do with the knowledge that there's an extra 30 seconds left with your red light? get angrier? very few audi a4s driving in southern nevada relatively speaking, so there's no way the traffic center could get any data set large enough to make traffic flow smoother through the city like this video suggests. you have to start somewhere and that's cool and all but this is still way into the future when drivers will see some real benefit in reducing their commute times.

    Great just what red light runners need. Also great for the lead foot runners to get that half second jump at the light when first.

    I've essentially been doing this on my own all along. If you have a brain, there are "cues" you can pick up from the Crossing Signals and the Traffic lights facing the cross street you're waiting at. Regardless, the idiots that gun it to get to red lights usually fuck up any planning I'm doing to coast through all green lights. But, sometimes it works out pretty nicely when traffic is lighter.

    This is what Audi is focusing on? Silly

    Who would care if the machine learing self driving car knows without you having to drive?

    OR… How about the govt update those traffic lights so they show many more seconds it'll stay red?

  • Lol none of the above, it tells me how much time I have to look at facebook, tweet, or Pokeman Go ;-)…

    the police would know when you drive 71 on a 70 road. The cars maximum
    speed could also be limited to 70 in realtime.

    They havent started to use these functions. Yet.

    It will take a few seconds for the car to download the latest "trafic
    security update" ones its been decided to implement it. You wont be
    asked for permission, but the car will probably let you know that its
    been updated with some new features when you start it in the morning.

    Why all the complication? They can simply add Android auto and Google maps will show traffic status

    So they can keep track of my speed; I am going to avoid that car or I am going to get tickets every day.

    OR move to Europe where we have these magical things called trafic light timers ,wait for it, directly on the pole

  • Zhou Ziyang

    Right. Get off with the technology. It's just gimmicky and unnecessary . Put a timer next to the light just like some Asian country .

    Isn't there already a much simpler solution to traffic light predictions?

    There are traffic lights in Japan and China that does countdown…. so from drivers in an Audi to the flying bats know when the lights would turn green/red.

    Of course, this technology in this video is good, but I doubt it would stay for long.

    I live in Nanjing, China. We have had built-in counter for the light since almost 2 decades ago. Lol
