Jaguar Land Rover ensures drivers continue to get a green light
Jaguar Land Rover
Jaguar Land Rover has developed a vehicle-to-infrastructure system to help drivers avoid getting held up at red traffic lights.
The Green Light Optimal Speed Advisory (GLOSA) technology
allows a vehicle to communicate with the traffic signals, and suggests the speed at which the driver should approach at.
Forming part of the government-funded UK Autodrive research
project, the belief is that widespread use of this technology will help improve
air quality by reducing harsh acceleration or braking around traffic lights,
and to help free up traffic flow in town and city centres
Oriol Quintana-Morales, Jaguar Land Rover’s Connected
Technology Research Engineer, said the ambition is to use this cutting-edge
technology to reduce the time people waste waiting at traffic lights.
“It has the potential to revolutionise driving by creating
safe, free-flowing cities that take the stress out of commuting,” he adds. “Our
research is motivated by the chance to make future journeys as comfortable and
stress-free as possible for all our customers.”
The UK Autodrive trials have helped Jaguar Land Rover
accelerate its self-driving and connected car technologies as part of the
company’s pledge to deliver zero accidents, zero congestion and zero emissions.
