    Audi Traffic Light Detection System

    Audi Traffic Light Detection System
    If you have many traffic ticket? You can consider this Audi's Traffic Light Detection System. Audi's stoplight detection system, named Travolution.
    " The experimental 'Travolution' system, developed with Audi support by traffic management experts in the brand's German home town of Ingolstadt, will not only improve synchronisation and phasing of traffic light networks to reduce stopping times, but could also dramatically reduce the number of actual stops needed by creating a communications link between cars and the traffic light network.
    Communications modules built into each traffic light are able to send messages to cars in the vicinity, alerting them to the time remaining until their next green phase. The car's onboard system is then able to calculate the speed which the driver must maintain in order to pass through the light during this green phase, and displays this via the Multi Media Interface display. "
    A network of 46 of the 'intelligent' traffic lights has been installed in the centre of Ingolstadt, the software to which they are all linked optimising their phasing to bring stopping times down to a minimum, reducing fuel consumption and pollution in the process.
    Of the 46 light gantries, three have been upgraded to enable communication with the specially modified A5 and A6 Avant models provided by Audi as part of the 1.2-million Euro pilot project. A further 20 cars and 50 light installations are to be incorporated as the project evolves.
    If you want to save time and money on your commute, follow the Audis.
