Virtual Traffic Lights May Replace Physical Lights

New research suggests that virtual traffic lights, projected within a driver's vehicle, could shave travel times for rush hour commuters by as much as 40%. The technology is designed to display a dynamic traffic light in a driver's dashboard when it approaches an intersection with other vehicles. The cars will communicate with each other and calculate the safest times for each driver to go. The hope is to eliminate unnecessary waiting at traffic lights with empty intersections or excessively long light cycle times.
