The clever traffic light assistant


New service from the City of Frankfurt am Main's Road Traffic Office

Experience smart cycling in Frankfurt am Main! Following the successful completion of the project, the trafficpilot app can now be used in the Frankfurt city area. Get the app for free from the App Store (iOS) or the Googe Play Store (Android) on your smartphone. 

The trafficpilot shows the right speed to stay in the green wave. The app can be used by bike or car. The colours symbolise whether the next traffic light will be reached on red or green and how reliable the forecast is (Fig. Forecast reliability). The illustration (Fig. Green wave band) shows that at the current speed you will reach the next traffic light on green (colour in the middle of the blue arrow). If you drive faster (top colour) or slower (bottom colour), you will reach the red light. In the event of a stop, the current status of the traffic light is shown at the top of the screen (Fig. remaining red display). If the colour is red, the expected time until the traffic light changes is counted down (if available). The toolbar shows the current speed on the left and the distance to the traffic light on the right.
