Vous ne pilerez plus devant un feu orange (FR)

Situation connue : vous êtes en voiture à 300 mètres d’un carrefour, le feu est vert. Va-t-il le rester ? Faut-il accélérer au risque de piler, ralentir en douceur ? L’idéal serait de connaître à l’avance les passages à l’orange et au rouge. C’est possible. Un projet nommé Compass4D est en cours d’expérimentation jusqu’à la fin de l’année dans sept villes européennes, dont Bordeaux. Dans le futur connecté, les voitures parleront avec les infrastructures routières, échangeront des informations sur l’état de la route ou du trafic.

The future is now! (EN)

Do you remember when you had to rely on paper maps on your car rides? Or when you had to queue in different kiosks to buy your printed-out public transport tickets? Or when you sent a box and couldn’t access tracking information on the location and state of your precious belongings? The answer “no” brings just some examples of how Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) have impacted people’s mobility and the transport of goods.
