German automaker giant Audi has gone ahead and developed an extraordinary new traffic light information system that is designed to make it easier than ever for drivers of different Audi model cars to maximize the number of green lights they encounter and mitigate red light stoppages.

The system is designed to connect to cities' infrastructure through LTE mechanisms, allowing it to garner information from the central management systems that control traffic lights. By taking this information into account, the traffic light information system can calculate the ideal speed at which to drive in order to maximize green lights.

In addition to making driving more pleasant and smooth, this traffic light information system could ultimately help reduce traffic congestion and pollution.
