BMW has announced that its cars will be able to tell you when the traffic light ahead changes color, the company will integrate the EnLighten App, by Connected Signals into their vehicles.
If you own one of Apple’s iOS device then you will be able to see the status of traffic lights ahead of you on the built in display in your BMW.
The EnLighten app shows the current status of the traffic light in front of the car in real time as well as a countdown to when the signal will change. Based on the current vehicle position, as well as its speed, the EnLighten app offers a recommendation about whether or not to stop for the traffic light or proceed through. An audio alert notifies the driver about a pending change in the signal they are approaching.
At intersections where there are dedicated traffic signals for turns, the activation of the vehicle’s turn indicator tells the app of the driver’s intention to turn so that only the status of the relevant signal is displayed.
You can find out more details about the new EnLighten App for BMW’s over at their website at the link below.
