It wont take long until cars will communicate with the road and infrastructure. Audi is making its first steps in this direction with the introduction of a new technology that have positioned Audi as the industry leader in connectivity solutions.

Traffic Light Information, an Audi connect PRIME feature, is available on some 2017 Audi A4, Q7 & Allroad models, and enables the car to communicate with the infrastructure in select cities and metropolitan areas across the U.S. The car receives real-time signal information from the advanced traffic management system that monitors traffic lights via the on-board 4G LTE data connection.

When approaching a connected traffic light, Traffic Light Information displays the time remaining until the signal changes to green in the driver instrument cluster, as well as the head-up-display (if equipped). Providing the driver with this additional information helps reduce stress and allows the driver to see how much time remains before the changing of the light.

This “time-to-green” feature will be the first feature to leverage the Audi Traffic Light Information service. In the future, it may be possible to integrate information from these advanced traffic management systems into vehicle start/stop features, navigation systems to optimize routing, and predictive services such as presenting the driver with a speed recommendation designed to maximize the number of green lights one can make in sequence. All of these services would be designed to either improve efficiency, drive time or traffic management.

Traffic Light Information is launching this December in the U.S. beginning with Las Vegas and will be available to customers with select Audi A4, Q7 and A4 Allroad models (manufactured after June 1, 2016) equipped with an active Audi connect PRIME subscription.

Continued expansion to additional cities across the U.S. is ongoing as we work with municipalities to prepare their infrastructure for V2I connectivity. Audi has partnered with Traffic Technology Services (TTS) to facilitate the transfer of traffic light data to Audi vehicles.
