Meeting OEM’s vision and goals while prioritizing passenger experience ​

Switchable smart glass with PDLC or SPD technologies, integrated into railway compliant IGU windows, allows glass to turn on or off in milliseconds to control various forms of light via touch panel at seat, centralized system, or preset automations for dynamic shading, privacy, solar control, and displays that can turn transparent. ​

Gauzy is working with leading OEM’s and Tier 1 suppliers to integrate our technology through a system based approach. Instant shading and solar reflection eliminates road glare and mitigates interior temperatures while providing manufactures a solution that reduces material costs, optimizes space, and saves energy.
