Glass plays a crucial role in a vehicle’s ability to offer security and safety for its occupants. Intelligent glass controls and modifies properties of light that passes through it. Previously, the application of intelligent glass was limited to only architectural and construction purposes. However, with technology enhancements, intelligent glass has also found its application in automotive. Increasing demand for lightweight glass to enhance fuel efficiency of vehicles is driving demand for intelligent glass in the automotive sector. Moreover, intelligent glass offers several benefits in comparison with traditional glass, including increased comfort of the end users, protection from the ultraviolet range, and enhanced visibility. There are many safety regulations for the glass to be used in automotive, and intelligent glass fulfills the need of those norms of a specific region.
