TOKYO, Dec. 5, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — AGC, a Tokyo-based world-class glass, chemicals and high-tech materials manufacturer for the mobility industry, announced its second appearance at CES 2024. AGC will be on hand to showcase 20 cutting-edge solutions, mainly glass for the auto industry, all focusing on three areas: detection, connection and comfortability, to lead the next generation of mobility.
AGC has been in operation for over a century, supplying innovative materials and solutions to meet the demands of the ever-changing society. As it works to shift automotive glass from simply serving as a barrier to becoming multi-functional, the company approaches its products through the lens of creating not only economic value but also social value.
“At AGC, we firmly believe that glass and performance chemicals permeate every aspect of your living environment, enabling us to drive innovation across all domains with our cutting-edge technology,” said Hideyuki Kurata, CTO of AGC. “We have been refining core technologies, such as material technology, functional design, and production technology, since our foundation. With our advanced materials and solutions showcased at CES, we aim to drive innovation in the next generation of mobility. We invite you to experience them firsthand at our booth.”
The products AGC will highlight at the show include:
Wideye is an infrared, transparent and high-optical performance automotive glass for vision glazing, trims and sensor covers. It is specially crafted for advanced driver assistance systems and autonomous driving and can be mounted on multiple vehicle parts to ensure optimal protection while maintaining a sleek design.
Connection: 5G-compatible Glass Antenna
Elegantly designed, these glass antennas are compatible with all frequencies of 5G. They can be installed from the interior side of existing window glass, thereby converting the windows into antennas. Halo.Car, an innovative Las Vegas-based EV driverless car service that uses 5G, has incorporated AGC’s glass antennas, which have been used strategically to minimize communication drops.
Comfortability: Automotive Display Cover Glass
We were the first in the world to introduce automotive display cover glass. Leveraging advanced processing technology, quality, and strength, as well as the advantages of film deposition technologies such as anti-reflective and fingerprint-resistant coatings, we have achieved “safety,” “high visibility,” and “superior aesthetics.” This time, we are planning to showcase large, curved displays.
CES attendees and automotive enthusiasts can visit the AGC exhibition to learn more about these innovations at Booth 6667 in LVCC West Hall Vehicle Tech & Advanced Mobility. AGC representatives and executives will be at the booth to demonstrate the technologies and answer any questions.
