Audi is updating its embedded traffic light-reading technology to help you catch those mythical “green waves” with more precision. This is one of most annoying things every driver in the urban areas has to deal with… poorly timed traffic lights. It slows you down and it is terrible for your car fuel economy.
The Verge is reporting:
Audi calls the new feature Green Light Optimized Speed Advisory, or GLOSA, which tells drivers how to moderate their speed to minimize red light stops. Essentially, a sensor installed in the traffic light “talks” to the car and tells it how much time is left before a red light turns green.
