Taking the passenger car and making it more is the combination of dozens of factors engine technology to aerodynamics to extreme measures like

But some factors you just can t like traffic, weather and the of traffic signals.

Audi it can at least mitigate the latter its latest technology though, its traffic light recognition

Essentially, it relies on in-car to connect to the traffic systems in a or city, at which point it can information to the driver on the cycle of the lights ahead.

The idea is if a light is changing ahead, the car knows about it—and can actions to the driver based on the light will do next.

If you re a light that s set to turn red you reach it, for example, a message up in the instrument cluster suggesting you to slow down, rather having to brake at the last when the lights change.

Likewise, if you re already sitting at a the car knows when it ll change It can even be integrated with the car s system, which can re-start the car seconds before the light is due to green, so you re ready to go when it

Audi suggests the technology can a driver time, but potentially huge quantities of fuel too if applied, as the typical city from red light to red light be reduced.

We actually got a chance to the system last year, Audi s A1 e-tron prototype the streets of Berlin.

Approaching lights, a central let us know when one was about to red, giving us time to before it did. And at the light, a timer revealed how long the had to go.

It s as important in electric vehicles as it is ones, where maintaining and not wasting energy can have a effect on a car s battery range.

Audi continues to test the in Berlin, as well as the Italian of Verona, where 60 sets of lights covering the center of the are involved.

The automaker says the is essentially compatible with car Audi produces right and a U.S. launch is apparently the of intense analysis. For internet-equipped it could be the next low-hanging for improving real-world city
