Audi Traffic Light Assist is an intriguing piece of technology created to help drivers never miss a green light. Okay, so it can't actually turn red lights green instantly, but it does tell you the current color of the next light you're about to hit along with the time until that light changes. The system works using local traffic light data patterns combined with the motion of the car.

The result is a system that works pretty well when it comes to telling you the status of your next light. Audi Traffic Light Assist was demoed at CES 2014, and the company says that installing it in cars is possible but that traffic data needs to be accessed for each city individually. Audi owners, the days of frustrating red light waits may soon be over.
