Car2Car – Green Light Optimum Speed Advisory
Enabling vehicles to communicate with each other and with the traffic environment opens up fantastic possibilities. Vital information can be shared and exchanged – creating a more comfortable and safer drive. The technology is based on communication between transmitters in vehicles and the road infrastructure, such as road signs and traffic lights. At red lights, the driver can also receive information about how long it will be before the light turns green – and about the optimum speed for a car to maintain in order to pass through a succession of green lights, thus avoiding unnecessary braking.
