IoT app: Traffic Lights

BMWs Now Know Exactly When That Red Light Is Going To Change | Co.Exist | ideas + impact

"EnLighten, also available as a smartphone app, connects to the traffic signal network in compatible cities and predicts the behavior of traffic lights. It does this by talking to new Dedicated Short-Range Communication (DSRC) systems which are being installed on roadways by the U.S. Department of Transportation. This gives the car (or the app) information about a city’s traffic management, which it combines with its knowledge of your car’s speed and location (using GPS)."
