    Why not create an application which will use camera equipped dashboard mounted mobile devices to let drivers know the best speed to maintain in order to avoid traffic lights?
    The application will collect traffic signal data as the car moves about and then will feed it back to a central system, which will allow a larger image of the traffic flow to be created. This information could then be used to tell the driver how quickly they are approaching the traffic signal as well as where it is in its stop-go cycle and at what speed they should travel in order to avoid making a complete stop.
    Such an application is supposed to be able to reduce fuel consumption by 20 percent by cutting down on the number of times the driver needs to accelerate from a stop.
