15 test persons have tested the green-wave-app on a distance of 700 metres. Along this route are six junctions, and  so far on average cyclists had to stop at three traffic lights. The Siemens-App SiBike try to request a green signal at the next traffic light or to extend a green phase. The test show a reduction of the average stops on this route by nearly 30 percent. SiBike identifies the position and speed of the bicycle via GPS and is in contact with the light control traffic management.
