Absorptive, Scattering, Reflective

Autonomous cars are expected to provide an interior that can adjust from driving mode to a more relaxed mode. A big part of this comes from changing the functionality of existing components in a car. A rearview mirror that transforms into a display. An electronically switchable, all glass roof to allow openness feeling but block direct sun when needed. Windshields that change transmission depending on the lighting condition or the degree of privacy desired by the passengers.

These concepts are now being designed and tested by AlphaMicron. In fact, AlphaMicron has several
on-going projects with OEM and Tier 1 suppliers of many of these items.
