Market Trends

Automation

INTEGRATING SYSTEMS WITH GLASS

Vehicle automation has begun as Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) are installed into an increasing number of passenger vehicles.


The continuing development of these systems is requiring ever more complex cameras and lasers to sense the vehicle's surroundings.


NSG HAS EXTENSIVE EXPERIENCE IN MANAGING THE HIGH LEVEL OF OPTICAL QUALITY REQUIRED FOR THESE SENSORS AND SUPPLYING GLASS SOLUTIONS TO PROTECT THEM FROM DAMAGE, FROST, AND FOG

Electrification

CONSERVING ENERGY THROUGH GLASS TECHNOLOGY

Electric vehicles produce no exhaust emissions so they are able to offer our world a cleaner means of transportation. 


Traditionally, the internal combustion engine is used to manage heating and cooling of the cabin area, but for an electric vehicle this is supplied using the energy stored in the batteries which significantly limits the vehicles range.


NSG’S SOLAR CONTROL AND LOW-E GLASS ARE ALREADY USED EXTENSIVELY IN BUILDINGS TO IMPROVE ENERGY EFFICIENCY, AND WE CAN OFFER THE SAME BENEFITS FOR VEHICLES


Shared Mobility

CONNECTED AND COMFORTABLE GLASS SOLUTIONS

Across our cities, car sharing networks are growing in popularity.  These offer passengers flexibility to travel but are dependent on networks for mobile communication.
