That's usually the way that it works. :-)

The light in question (I assume) is the traffic light rather than a battery indicator light.

Setting that aside, it seems like this is also a useful part for battery-driven low energy designs. Does anyone know how it compares to the status reported by smart batteries? Are there any possibilities in that area in addition to this automotive application?

What should the user do if the light is not green? Should he just wait in middle of the road till it turns green.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
