App to predict traffic lights for BMW
 
Anyone else see this?

BMW offers EnLighten app connectivity to predict traffic signals | Fox News

And who's going to develop one for Ecomodder?

According to this is a stand alone App. Might check it out, probably an iphone app.

"While EnLighten is a standalone app run from a smartphone"

You need to live somewhere where it's possible (and legal) to connect to the traffic signals themselves (via WIFI?), it won't just work on every signal.

I told my son about this years ago. In five minutes he had already downloaded it to his iPhone and decided it was superior to the turn-by-turn in his SRT-8. An hour later he was already grumpy when we rolled into Springfield and it stopped working.

It isn't predictive of the lights, it's peered to the traffic-light servers that control the lights. When you can can see all the lights in town all the time, bad synching of the light will cause citizen advocacy. David Brin would call it sousveillance.

•Coming soon to Arcadia, CA

•Many more locations to follow...

Benefits to cities:
•Reduced driver distraction and increased safety.
•Access to low-cost anonymized traffic flow information (including point to point studies).
•Better understanding of infrastructure needs and traffic light system performance.
•Enabling future connected-vehicle applications to reduce congestion, fuel consumption and carbon emissions.
•No per-light or per-vehicle installation costs, unlike other Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (V2I) approaches.
•Leverage existing technology investment.
•Accessible public technology demonstrator and showcase benefits of the ITS infrastructure.

We shall see how AudiHonda does with the various municipalities.
