According to Andreas wolf, head of Continental’s body and security business unit, Windows can automatically brighten when you approach the vehicle with the key or smartphone. In addition to this, technology brings several benefits, this includes the reduction of CO2 emissions through the cooler interior.

Engineers at continental will be demonstrating what it calls a “suspended particle device” film. It is based on the embedded particles can arrange themselves randomly when it’s not activated. If the voltage is not applied, the particles are oriented in parallel, in order to allow light to pass in both directions.

At the consumer electronics show (CES) held in Las Vegas from January 6, 2016, continental will be showcasing innovative automatic tinting technology. The demo car will be on display features “smart glass Management.” It uses special film that is inserted in the Cup and it can change its transparency using electric control signals, by pressing a single button.

According to him, calculations showed a reduction of CO2 emissions by four grams per kilometer. This gives electric cars an increased range 5.5%. Secondly, it provides additional security and privacy, “if the car is parked, the Windows darken automatically, and inside the vehicle may not be visible from the outside, — said wolf.

Although impressive, the brand says that in self-tinting tech is still quite expensive. However, it is expected that prices will fall faster because the initial applications occur in the field of mobile technology. As a reference, other film technology is based on liquid crystal polymers or electrochromism.

“We can keep the heat out of the car and significantly reduce the temperature in the cabin, ‘ said the wolf. He added that with the technician, he “shoots” from the air conditioner, which can then be smaller, more efficient and easier. In addition, sun visors and automatic blinds can be lowered also.

Still, this kind of auto-tinting film has only been feasible in the roof area for a small number of high performance cars such as the Mercedes-Benz Magic sky control system (pictured below), which is offered on the SL, SLK, S-class coupe and the Mercedes-Maybach S-class. Now, continental says it’s ready to be used on all-around Windows.
