How The Glass Inside Your Car Is Engineered - Not So Simple!

As new display technology continues to develop and the auto industry pushes our car interiors to mirror our smartphones, what do these new screens and displays actually mean for the car? What are the drawbacks?

I paid a visit to Corning’s Sullivan Park campus in New York to learn from some of their top automotive glass scientists and perform a few tests myself to see how different factors like durability, readability and glare come into play in the design and creation of these displays, and how future-thinking companies like Corning are engineering with these in mind. We’ll talk about how the glass is made, how it stands up to the tests I’ll perform and why the glass composition is more important than you’d think.
