As a driver, you must be worried by a lot of things, including when the traffic lights are turning green or red.Audi wants to help you regarding this matter. They are going to release cars that will electronically communicate with traffic signals. How cool is that?
Well, you should know that, at first, the functionality will be limited. A display on the instrument panel in front of the driver will show what colour the traffic lights have and count down the second until they are green. Audi officials said they are not going to stop. They want to have a better system, one that can give drivers more information about traffic .
Even though there will some improvements, we are very interested to find out more about this new feature. This can be a major step for the auto industry. Cars will be able to communicate with signals or bridges just to make travel safer for all of us. There have been people who thought of this idea before, but no one has been able to create it until now.
We should be also expecting that the cars will talk to each other in the future. This system will let the car know if another vehicle is near it and determine if they can collide or not. Drivers will get a warning if they are too close and this way an accident will not take place. Audi said the new technology will come in 2017. The cars will communicate with signals in several cities for the U.S. They are going to focus on continuous innovation in connected car services and driver assistance systems. The big company wants to make customers’ experience better and have more and more people who want to buy its cars.
Audi is a German automobile manufacturer, one of the most popular in the world. The origins of the company are complex, going back to the early 20th century. It was founded by engineer August Horch in 1932. Audi’s sales grew in the last few years. There are more customers from the Eastern Europe, but also from China, where Audi cars are used by the Chinese government. We can’t wait to try the new feature they are going to release. We are hoping that drivers will be safer than before and who knows, maybe in the future will be able to talk with our cars.
