Energy efficiency

Faced with the obligation to reduce the car’s CO2 emissions, glass can make a significant contribution through solar control glazing, a dynamic light control glass roof and lightweight glazings.

Connectivity

The rise in connectivity means that we also need to create fully-connected cars. Automotive glazings are already integrating multiple invisible antennas while preserving the car’s design. We are testing new solutions to support the rollout of 5G connections.

Autonomous cars

Major advances are being made in the world of autonomous vehicles, which require sensors and LiDARs to operate in full safety. Glass is most probably the best material to accommodate those devices, as long as it meets their requirements. AGC glass already does.

Interior car design

The changes in the way we use our cars and especially the advent of autonomous cars will free up drivers and passengers to spend more travelling time on entertainment. Touchscreens and monitors resulting from this trend will require AGC’s ultra-thin and highly resistant tech glass, built to be both functional and stylish.
