In some cars there is a very interesting technology — “smart” shading that colors the glass in a dark color with a special film with electronic control. According to recently published patent, the company Tesla has improved the technology, equipping the film tiny LEDs. As a rule, electric glass tinted glass used in hatches of vehicles — perhaps in the future their services will be covered such innovative glasses.
The patent application States that the main purpose of technology is to control the level of light Tesla throughout the day. With electric film located in the middle of two transparent glass of the hatch, it will be quite feasible. So, in the daytime it can be painted in a dark color and not to let the sun’s rays. In the dark glass can illuminate the room with tiny LEDs.
In the proposal noted that car owners will be able to adjust the intensity and tint of the light via the interface on the car’s screen or mobile app. It is noted that the light is emitted from the lateral sides of the film, so between the LEDs will be located the elements for its uniform distribution.
As the author of the invention specified by the engineer Tesla Jung Min young, who joined the company in 2016. Prior to that, he worked at Apple and developed the newest displays for its devices.
