- Keep a vehicle’s interior thermal level even and comfortable all year long
- Reduce vehicle weight
- Provide maximum visibility for better, safer driving

So What Is Smart Glass?
It’s the catch-all name for car glass that’s had “smart” coating or laminating materials added to it, or that’s been embedded with electronics or sensors to perform navigational tasks.
Making the windshield smart gives it capabilities such as becoming self-tinting, self-cleaning, and self-repairing. Smart glass can even become an entertainment center. The next time you go for a smart glass replacement, you might be surprised at how high-tech windshields have become.
OK, the average windshield isn’t smart enough to repair itself. Yet. However, with glass and glazing technology advancing rapidly, let’s take a quick look at the windshield trends we – and drivers – will soon be looking at in the next few years.
For starters, the two windshield design trends prevalent today are helping create a more open feel inside a car, giving drivers a much better look at everything.
- Cielo Design
This design allows the windshield to extend up into the roof above the driver’s head.
- Panoramic Design
Smart Glass Features
Our smart glass installation in Flagstaff, AZ, and surrounding areas offers several cutting-edge features.
- Rain Sensors
An accessory that determines the need for wipers and speed of wipers usually mounted behind the rearview mirror.
- Condensation Sensors
Determines if defrosters should be working to remove fog from the windshield
- Heated Windshields
Usually, very small wires embedded in the windshield that warm the windshield gradually to melt ice and snow
- Lane Departure Warning System
Camera in or next to rearview mirror that recognizes when the vehicle crosses lines without having turn signals activated
- High Beam Sensor
Automatically adjusts high beam when oncoming traffic is approaching.
- Self-tinting Glass
Reducing glare and bright sunshine by turning glass from clear to dark with the push of a button sounds pretty good, doesn’t it? Led by such well-known smart glass technologies as electrochromic and suspended particle devices (SPD), self-tinting is gaining acceptance by auto manufacturers. It filters out UV light and also provides thermal insulation to reduce the energy drain of the air conditioner.
