The team at MIT has created SignalGuru, an app that can help drivers avoid waiting in red lights. The app uses crowd sourced information about stoplight data and creates a bigger picture of the city’s traffic flow. In turn, it can help the driver calculate an optimal driving speed so he/she won’t need to come to a complete stop at the upcoming traffic light. This app generally suggests to slow down, rather than speed up.  By not waiting around at a red light or constantly accelerating, SignalGuru reported that it helped drivers save 20 percent off their fuel consumption.
