Submission + - Traffic App Could Change Driving Forever (time.com)

schwit1 writes: Researchers from MIT and Princeton have developed a smartphone application called SignalGuru that uses the camera from a dashboard-mounted smartphone to capture images of traffic lights. Once the images are captured, they're analyzed to detect whether the lights are green, yellow or red and then that data is passed along to other nearby SignalGuru users.

Using the resulting data, the app can relay to a particular driver how quickly he or she will need to drive in order to make the next light. If the next light is already red, the driver can coast up to it slowly instead.
