Audi to sell cars that talk to traffic lights

The German carmaker Audi is rolling out technology that will allow its vehicles to communicate with traffic lights.
Audi of America, which is owned by Volkswagen, said select 2017 Q7 and A4 models built after 1 June 2016 would be equipped with the system.
Audi’s version of technology known in the industry as “V-to-I”, or vehicle to infrastructure, displays a countdown before a red light turns to green, with a countdown also appearing when it is too late to get through an approaching signal before it turns red.
