Toyota developing new traffic light recognising GPS system

Toyota is developing a new GPS system which recognises red traffic lights and warns drivers of stop signs.

The new system is only being tested in Japan at the moment and requires special infrastructure at crossings with police installing infra-red transmitters that communicate with the Toyota GPS. If the driver fails to slow down, they are instructed to heed the warning signal.

At the traffic light the driver is informed of the remaining waiting time till the light goes green.
