A new year brings the prospect of new ideas and inventions. Technology has been rapidly improving with no signs of slowing down. Certainly, every industry has been positively affected by technological advancements, and the auto glass industry is no different. The latest auto glass technology trends for the first month of this new year include everything from Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) to smart glass installations.
Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS)
ADAS are state-of-the-art systems in vehicles to help increase road safety. With implemented safety measures in place to avoid collisions, they have become increasingly popular among drivers. They work by alerting drivers before a problem arises or can even take control of the vehicle to prevent an accident.
Something important to note is that most ADAS technology is found on the windshield. Therefore, as technology advances, the auto glass industry must be equipped to repair and replace windshields with this technology.
In addition to ADAS installations, the glass on windshields have gotten smarter and greener. For instance, glass is lighter, more durable and resilient, while also being increasingly sustainable. Windshields, in addition to windows, have certain technological updates that allow the glass to respond to light, temperature, and moisture, to name a few.
