AERIS stands for Application for the Environment: Real-Time Information Synthesis. The vision for this program is “Cleaner Air Through Smarter Transportation”.  The program can be summarized by “Four E’s” -  Efficiency, Energy, Emissions, and Economical.
Employing a multi-modal approach, the AERIS Research Program  aims to encourage the development of technologies and applications that support a more sustainable relationship between transportation and the environment chiefly through fuel use  reductions and resulting emissions reductions.
AERIS applications leverage vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V), vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I), and vehicle-to-grid (V2G) data (and other) exchanges via wireless technologies of various types. These applications are specifically designed to facilitate and incentivize “green choices” by transportation service consumers (system users, system operators, policy decision makers, etc.)
Major objectives of the AERIS Program include:
Identifying connected vehicle applications that could provide environmental impact reduction benefits via reduced fuel use, improved vehicle efficiency, and reduced emissions.
Facilitating and incentivizing “green choices” by transportation service consumers (i.e., system users, system operators, policy decision makers, etc.).
Identifying vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V), vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I), and vehicle-to-grid (V2G) data exchanges via wireless technologies of various types.
Modeling and analyzing connected vehicle applications to estimate the potential environmental impact reduction benefits.
Developing a prototype for one of the applications to test its efficacy and usefulness.

Audi and other OEMs are researching and demonstrating similar applications.

Scenario 1 (Green): No speed changes are needed to make the green light, maintain current speed.
Scenario 2 (Blue): Slight speed increase needed to make the green light, speed advice increase given within speed limit of roadway.
Scenario 3 (Red): The green light cannot be made. The vehicle receives a recommendation to decelerate in the most eco-friendly manner to the intersection.
Scenario 4 (Yellow): The green light can be made with a decrease or coasting speed. Recommendations for a slight slow down or coasting to the intersection are given.
