Tata-Motors, Jaguar Land Rover, could significantly shorten (or even eliminate) the waiting time from a traffic light with a new technology called Green Light Optimal Speed Advisory (GLOSA).
Jaguar Land Rover is experiencing GLOSA technology on the Jaguar F-Pace SUV, demonstrating how the internet can connect to the traffic light. This connection can be used to inform the driver of the optimum driving speed to capture the green front light without stopping or accelerating.
The implementation of this system aims to simplify traffic and eliminate congestion. Brake emissions or acceleration should also be reduced, while drivers will also be deprived of driving stress.
To make this system run nationwide, all traffic lights will need to be intelligent and connected to the Internet. GLOSA technology is currently being tested in Coventry, West Midlands, UK.
"We have developed this technology in partnership with the Coventry City Council, which has ambitious mobility plans in the future …" explains Colin Lee, Jaguar Land Rover Manager.
