We propose some driver assistance systems with communication to traffic lights. It proposes the driver assistance system that uses information from the traffic lights with the state of the signal and time of the cycle. The demand traffic lights systems are also proposed. In addition, a consideration of the configuration and the construction of the experiment systems, and some field experiments for driver assistance are described.
