Audi cars ‘will talk to traffic lights’, firm says
Audi’s introduction of technology that allows cars to communicate with traffic lights, the manufacturer announced.
It will tell drivers when they are a result of the turn green lights when they will not make it before the light turns red.
The company said it was supposed to make it less stressful driving,
rather than aid to be in the field of safety, it was reported.
One expert said that it requires large investments to make them viable in the UK.
According to Audi, it was made
“between the vehicle and the infrastructure” or “V-to-I” technology in the A4 models built after June 1 of this year, and will be put in some models Q7 next year.
The company owned by Volkswagen,
said safety and other operational information will be transmitted wirelessly between traffic signals and vehicles across the cloud.
Although it is hoped that the technology will eventually help reduce accidents and reduce congestion on the roads and highways,
said Baum Malhotra, general manager of compounds linked to Audi,
told reporters: “The design of this is not a safety feature, but the comfort and convenience feature.”
