  • SignalGuru was capable of predicting traffic-light activity with an accuracy of 98.2% and 96.3% respectively, in the two cities.

    This is an article about an apps that can indicate whether the traffic light status is red, amber or green. This can also save fuels. The name of the apps is SignalGuru. This apps had been tested in Singapore and Cambridge. In Cambridge, this apps was 98.2% accurate and in Singapore, this apps was 96.3% accurate.I think that this is a good way to save fuels because this apps was tested and it is easy to use. Other than that, this apps is cheap and easy to use because this is a mobile-phone apps and we just need to attach the phone inside of the car's widescreen with the camera lens pointing forward.
