SignalGuru app helps drivers avoid red lights

SignalGuru app helps drivers avoid red lights
Description Information on the traffic signals, such as when they change, is crowdsourced by other users of the app and then sent back to SignalGuru to improve the accuracy of its predictions.

"SignalGuru will advise the driver when to arrive at the intersection but the driver should always check for himself that the light indeed turned green," Koukoumidis said, noting that it's similar to how a driver does not follow a navigation device blindly. Crowdsourcing information about signal lights is necessary.
