Critical Commentary

I want to know more about how red lights priotize different forms of traffic. I took a snapshot measurement of a particularly annoying traffic light, but what about all the others?

The city of frankurt has that data of course but they won't share it with me. (I asked them.) They share it with GEVAS, however which is a software company based in Munich. GEVAS distributes an app for mobile that promises to guide traffic participants to follow a "green wave". This is the link to their website.

The promotional video shows a cyclist, but I wonder who actually uses this app. It seems really impractical on a bike.

The website also has a map of all the enrolled traffic stops in Frankfurt, and quantifies the precision of predicting traffic light phases. I wonder if pushing the yellow button messes with the precision rating.
