Spanish carmaker SEAT is working on developing a new technology that will enable cars to connect with traffic signals and traffic control centres, which will allow drivers to better anticipate traffic status. For this project the carmaker has collaborated with the Spanish Traffic Authority, the Barcelona City Council and ETRA. The system will essentially send information directly to the vehicles on the road, sharing details like the colour of the next traffic signal on the route and what the colour of the signal will be by the time the vehicle reaches it at the current speed. This is useful if it is about to change to red, as drivers can begin to decelerate before reaching the traffic light. The system can also be used to alert drivers about any motorway incidents like road accidents.
