En Lighten iOS app will uses GPS speed and location data to track traffic signal
Last week the German carmaker announced integration of the EnLighten iOS app which uses GPS speed and location data to help drivers anticipate when a traffic signal is going to change. This app is to increase safety since drivers will be less likely to try and race through a stale green light, but also improve a vehicle’s fuel efficiency.
This En Lighten app is integrated into a BMW’s built- in navigation display, drivers doesn’t need to look after their phones for the upcoming traffic light. The app will shows the indication of the next signal light on the screen and displays the timer also to indicate the driver how many seconds are remaining for the next signal to occur.
This app currently limited to minimum number of cities only
The app even knows when your vehicle’s turn signal is on while stopped at a light, and will only show countdown information about a dedicated left or right turn signal if one is available at the intersection. It won’t get you around a corner any quicker, but knowing how much time you’ve got left can help you decide if and when it’s safe to proceed through.
Despite of requiring your iPhone to be in the vehicle for the connected EnLighten app to work with your Beemer, it also requires your city to have already set up a network of smart traffic signals. So right now it’s limited to Portland and Eugene, Oregon, Salt Lake City, Provo, and Ogden, Utah, Las Vegas, Nevada, and Arcadia and Walnut Creek, California. A very limited number of cities, but if you have absolutely no patience when it comes to waiting for traffic lights, now might be a great time to move.
