Purpose and goal
The purpose of the project was to study the possibilities of developing smart multifunctional glass with an integrated electronic control system, as well as charting the market conditions for such a product. Several possible functions were evaluated from both a technical and a market perspective, and a selection was made with the most interesting solutions for further development. A first smaller prototype of multifunctional glass with an integrated electronic control system was also developed within the project.
Expected results and effects
The project has resulted in the identification of interesting functions for further development and the market potential for a future product. A smaller prototype has been developed which has successfully demonstrated the basic concept. The project group sees great potential in the project idea and intends to proceed with a larger development project.
Planned approach and implementation
The project plan was successful with work divided into several work packages. Functions and electronic systems were studied in parallel work packages focusing on the exchange of information for compatibility. Commercialization, including market and risk analysis, has also been carried out. The common knowledge base has increased and laid the groundwork for continuing with a larger development project.
