No More Guessing, Select 2017 Audi’s will Count Down Traffic Lights for You

Posted by Poquet Auto on Aug 23, 2016 10:00:00 AM

In 2017, select Audi’s will be connecting with a different system, one that will count down traffic lights!

Audi, along with Traffic Technology Services, will be launching a system that will tell drivers when the traffic lights will change to green. This new system, called Traffic Light Information (TLI), will be featured in certain 2017 Q7, A4 and A4 Allroad models this fall.

TLI will be part of Audi Connect Prime and enables the vehicles, in select cities, to communicate with the local traffic light systems through an LTE data connection. The car’s display will tell the driver how many seconds until the light turns green.

When asked about the future, Connected Vehicles’ general manager, Pom Malhotra, said that Audi’s TLI "represents Audi’s first step in vehicle-to-infrastructure integration. In the future we could envision this technology integrated into vehicle navigation, start/stop functionality and can even be used to help improve traffic flow in municipalities. These improvements could lead to better overall efficiency and shorter commuting times."
