Cadillac’s cars are getting even chattier. Now they can “talk” to traffic lights to let drivers know when the light is going to turn red, a feature meant to cut down on dangerous last-minute decisions.

The V2I test comes after the luxury automaker rolled out a feature to enable vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communication back in March, which made its 2017 CTS sedan the first car on the market with the ability to “talk” to other enabled vehicles in its vicinity by sending data about road conditions back and forth through a connected system.

This, they suggest, might have led to the overheating of the devices and, thus, a fire in the cockpit that spread and brought down the plane which was traveling from Paris to Cairo.
