Jaguar Aims to Solve Red Light Problem

New Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (V2X) technology will help drivers avoid red lights.

New Jaguar Land Rover technology is using Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (V2X) to connect cars to traffic lights so drivers can avoid getting stuck at a red.

Known as the Green Light Optimal Speed Advisory (GLOSA) system, the technology allows cars to “talk” to traffic lights and inform the driver of the speed he should drive as they approach an intersection.

The end goal is to see entire cities equipped with V2X technology, thereby  preventing drivers from racing to beat the lights or braking to stop at a light, which in turn will improve air quality.

V2X is currently being tested on a Jaguar F-PACE, as part of a £20 million research project.
