Smart traffic lights which always turn green to be trialled on Britain's roadsND

Francesca Marshall, The Telegraph, Wednesday 23 May 2018

New smart traffic lights that will always turn green are to be trialled on Britain’s roads, it has been announced. The smart lights are designed to put an end to stop-go driving, and will advise motorists of the speed they should drive at in order to arrive at the next set of lights when they turn green. Part of the desired outcome of the lights is to help create roads for driverless cars, and the concept is one of five shortlisted entries into a competition by the National Roads Commission, Highways England and Innovate UK to this end. The scheme, designed by engineering firm AECON, will be tested using a simulation model of the A59 in York. It is hoped it will cut congestion and reduce emissions through more efficient driving. “We are excited and are eager to get started so we can better understand the potential impact of vehicle-to-infrastructure technologies on our local road network in York,” Heather Hawkings, AECOM principal consultant, said.
