Jaguar Land Rover taught cars to communicate with traffic lightsNovember 15, 2018
The GLOSA system receiving data on the work of traffic lights can prompt drivers at what speed to move when it approaches the site of a traffic jam or adjustable transitions
Jaguar Land Rover has developed a new technology called Green Light Optimal Speed Advisory (GLOSA), based on the connection between vehicles and infrastructure (V2X). According to the press service of the brand, this system, for example, allows the car to exchange data with traffic lights. Thus, the technology will help drivers avoid traffic jams and relieve urban roads.
GLOSA receiving data on the work of traffic lights can prompt drivers at what speed to move when it approaches the site of a traffic jam or at regulated crossings and intersections. In addition, the new system will prevent cases where drivers accelerate in order to catch the flashing green, which leads to the creation of an emergency situation, and also evades fuel consumption.
“The main purpose of the use of V2X-systems is to reduce traffic congestion and the level of stress of road users,” added the company’s press service. At the moment, Jaguar Land Rover has already begun to test the system on public roads. For this, brand engineers use the F-Pace model. For this car equipped.
Tests are held in the framework of the state project UK Autodrive, which will accelerate the development of future unmanned technologies and communication systems from Jaguar Land Rover. The total investment in this program is estimated at £ 20 million.
Earlier, the Jaguar Land Rover Alliance (JLR) announced the start of testing vehicles with intelligent systems in the so-called “network corridor” – roads where vehicles can “communicate” with each other and elements of the surrounding infrastructure. Thus, the driver can receive information about the actions of other motorists, road signs and traffic lights, repairs, traffic jams, traffic capacity of pedestrians and pedestrians.
