There's Now An App To Make Sure You Get Green Lights!
Because green lights make everyone happy.
There’s nothing better than getting a string of green lights – and a new app will help make sure this happens to you!
Melbourne will be home to an Australian-first trial of a congestion busting app which communicates road conditions to drivers via an app.
The Herald Sun reports this allows drivers travelling at a set speed to experience continuous traffic.
It’s hoped the app will result in improved traffic and bring motorists serious time savings.
Hoddle St, Punt Rd, the Nepean Highway, Dandenong Rd and Warrigal Rd are contenders for the 18-month trial of the technology. The testing will be done in varying speed zones and traffic conditions.
VicRoads, which teamed up with vehicle and mobility services provider Intelematics to develop the technology, has invested more than $75K into the trial.
