With the proliferation of smart and autonomous vehicles, the need to modify conventional traffic lights comes to the forefront.

Traffic Lights to Change? Adding Another Color to the Agenda

Due to the operation of autonomous vehicles at wavelengths that are imperceptible to the human eye, the current traffic lights' use of only red, yellow, and green colors no longer suffices. Therefore, there is a necessity to add a color, such as 'white,' to the traffic lights.

This color will work at a wavelength that autonomous vehicles can perceive, facilitating their adaptation. A team at the North Carolina State University proposes adding a fourth light (likely white) to indicate the presence of autonomous vehicles that will assume responsibility and offer guidance instead of eliminating traffic signals. In this new approach, the white light will signify that we are following the vehicle in front of us. However, for this system to be effective, 40 to 50 percent of the vehicles on the road need to be autonomous, which will be a time-consuming process.

Meanwhile, researchers at the University of Michigan have conducted a pilot program to alter the timing of traffic lights using speed and location data from General Motors vehicles. It was observed that the traffic flow became smoother with the data utilized in this pilot program. This method does not require any modifications to the infrastructure since the data comes directly from the automobile companies.

The transformation of conventional traffic lights paves the way for a future where smart and autonomous vehicles can seamlessly integrate into traffic. These advancements will assist in making the driving experience safer and more efficient. As traffic systems continue to progress, the quality of daily life will improve, and environmental pollution will decrease.
