The Informed Driver

Car2Infrastructure Communication

The informed driver is the second sub-project in TRAVOLUTION. Three traffic lights in Ingolstadt were equipped with communication modules, which tell the on-board computer in the AUDI test car the time of the next green. With the AUDI infotainment system MMI, the driver is told the appropriate driving speed, so that he can pass the intersection without having to stop. 

The results from TRAVOLUTION are the basis for several follow-up projects. The research area in Ingolstadt will be expanded, so that 20 car and 50 light signals will communicate. In addition, up-to-date traffic information will be made available in the cars.
