When driving a car, rushing up as fast as you can to a red light before hitting the breaks at full speed is a sure way to burn fuel fast, but with the Audi Online Traffic Light Information System, drivers can now judge light changes sooner.

The system will also give a suggested speed for drivers so they know whether or not it's possible to make a green light. For example, if one is 20 meters away from a green light turning yellow in 10 seconds, the suggested speed will not be too high. However, if the light is changing sooner, this speed will increase.

A clever way to increase fuel efficiency and cut carbon emissions, the Audi Online Traffic Light Information System could even prevent accidents, as people could more easily predict a light changing from green to red.
