Intelligent Glass Control Demo Car

Scope

Intelligent Glass Control enables high comfort through automatic or manual discoloration of vehicle glazing. Our product controls special films which are inserted into the glass and which change their transparency according to the applied voltage level. With optimized electronic control of the new film technology „Liquid Crystal (LC)” on the sidelites, we can provide a neutral color, fast switching speed, good contrast and low temperature dependance.

Technology

Liquid Crystal film technology:

  • Neutral (black) color
  • Fast switching speed
  • Segmentation
  • Power type: < 20 V AC, less than 1 VA/ m²
  • Stand-alone ECU or in future integrated into vehicle‘s existing Continental ECUs
  • High software and system competence to enable full integration into the vehicle and thereby maximum user benefits

Media Experience

  • Intelligent Glass Control connects car windows and on-board computers
  • New film technology Segmented Liquid Crystal will be shown on demo car
