Audi networks with trade lights in a USA

Posted on 08. Dec, 2016 by in Audi Canada

Audi of America is auxiliary with several cities in North America to ascent a infrastructure for V2I technology. “For a initial time, a cars are exchanging information with trade infrastructure in genuine time. Drivers can adjust their duty to a conditions and pierce by city trade in a most some-more loose and tranquil way,” says Andreas Reich, conduct of Electronics Pre-Development during AUDI AG. “We boost appetite potency when we bond a Audi models to intelligent cities. Further V2I services will follow, creation a automobile into an interactive mobile device. We see unconstrained pushing as a finish of this development.”

As a initial step, all Audi A4 and Q7 models constructed for a U.S. marketplace given Jun 2016 and versed with Audi bond will have this duty on board. In a USA, metropolitan trade government centers will promulgate a traffic-light information to Audi’s plan partner Traffic Technology Services TTS. Here a information are prepared and sent to a on-board mechanism in a Audi around a quick Internet connection, for instance 4G/LTE, in genuine time.

The initial duty of a Traffic Light Information V2I member is called Time-to-Green. In a Audi practical cockpit or head-up display, drivers see either they will strech a subsequent light on immature while roving within a available speed limit. If not, a countdown is supposing of a time remaining until a subsequent immature proviso – and drivers can take their feet off a gas pedal in good time. Pilot projects in Europe have shown that drivers practice some-more foreknowledge interjection to this information about trade lights. This has a profitable altogether outcome on trade flow. “In a tests a a series of cars that had to stop to a delay in trade fell by around 20 percent. This saved time for a motorist and also finished fuel assets of about 15 percent in a commander project,” says Michael Zweck, plan manager for Audi Traffic Light Information.

First of all, Audi business will use this service. The growth work that Audi is investing in traffic-light systems will also advantage business of other brands in future. The augmenting widespread of a record will assistance city trade planners to know a causes of hold-ups and optimize a phasing of trade lights.

In destiny Traffic Light Information could be related adult to intelligent navigation and used for new powering concepts. For example, “green waves” in traffic-light sequences could be incorporated in track planning. It is also fathomable that Audi e-tron models could make larger use of braking appetite by charging a battery as they decelerate during a red light.

Audi also intends to deliver a record in Europe. In Berlin, Ingolstadt, Garmisch-Partenkirchen and Verona there have already been endless commander projects. In Berlin alone, some 700 trade lights in a middle city have been connected to a service. Across Europe, however, one information standards and digital infrastructure do not exist: “In Europe rarely different trade record is in use, as a infrastructure has grown locally and decentrally. We are operative on harmonization of a information that have been prepared. After that has been done, we can yield Traffic Light Information in Europe too,” Michael Zweck announced.
