Audi presents the Traffic Light Recognition feature

It seems that every other new tech incorporated into a car is either related to safety or fuel efficiency.

The Traffic Light Recognition feature from Audi is in the latter category, and while we can appreciate any step towards a cleaner environment, these techs seem to take it slightly too far.

While the name of Audi’s Traffic Light Recognition is pretty much explanatory, I will also try to shed some light on the feature. As you might already know, there is already a fuel saving option when at a red light, namely the start-stop feature, but add the Traffic Light Recognition and you get a much smoother transition.

The feature “reads” traffic lights as you go, and is able to calculate how much until the green light hits, starting the engine via the start-stop feature 5 seconds in advance. By doing this, Audi says they can cut emissions by up to 15 percent, and should that prove to be accurate, this will become quite a useful feature on any car.
