AUSTIN (KXAN) — A new technology is working to speed up your commute.
BMW and Connected Signals are developing an alert for drivers that tells them when the next stop light is red.
The goal is to help drivers choose the fastest route or change your speed to avoid waiting.
The an app called Enlighten, communicates with the city’s traffic control system to find out when street lights are about to change.
BMW is working to include a display system inside the cars. The screen would show you a red, yellow, and green dot counting down the seconds until the light changes.
