I entered my idea for the DTAS. Sorry about the format.
DTAS-Dynamic Trafficlight Anticipation System
Trafficstoplight timer for trafficflow improvment.
Driving Scenario: Inner city
Information about the next trafficstoplight. A would like to recieve information about when the next trafficstop light will change from green to red or the other way around. This shoudl be done by the trafficlight sending a signal that tells the car when it will change and into what color. The car should display a countdown clock and the color of the light.
This will help me adjust my speed to ensure the most efficiant and enviromentaly friendly speed. Currently I might speed up because I want to pass a green trafficlight before it turns red and then suddendly have to brake when it turns red before I reach it. Sometimes I can't imagine that I will have the time to pass the trafficlight and I start to slow down only to learn thet the green period was much longer than anticipated and I(and the cars behind me) then have to accelerate again. Knowing when the trafficlight will change should also help to alliviate stress in a long red light period.
