The heads of the automotive manufacturer Audi has launched an unusual technique of communication of vehicles with traffic lights in Dusseldorf, which is the second city in Europe after Ingolstadt, where this technology is actively working, starting in 2016.
The technology introduced by the manufacturers, operates in the majority of settlements 10 thousand crossroads. In the city of düsseldorf will start with 150 lights and gradually their number will increase. Note that the developed technology allows to warn the drivers about what signal of a traffic light burns at the moment and will burn at a time when the driver will be at the intersection.
The problem of full utilization of this technology is that most of the traffic lights in the city have been working not on a fixed schedule. Therefore, in order to have the system fully working, alerting drivers also need to be configuration of all existing traffic lights.
Manufacturers are confident that technology can help to avoid most of the traffic accidents that occur at traffic lights due to the fact that drivers don’t in time see the signal lit up.
