Canatu presented CNT film heater technology at the Automotive Smart Glazing World

As the automotive industry prepares for a future of autonomous cars, reliability in all weather conditions rises in relevance. Mist, condensation, and ice reduce the ADAS system functionality. Reliable and unobtrusive heating solutions are necessary to prevent safety risks. Canatu CNT film heaters keep safety-critical optical surfaces clear from weathering disturbances, advancing autonomous driving in any weather. Watch Markku Lamberg’s presentation on Canatu CNT film heaters at the Automotive Smart Glazing World Congress on January 21, 2021.

Trends towards electrification and autonomous driving shape the future of automotive glazing. Automotive glass applications are becoming more extensive and functions are becoming diversified. High-performance lightweight materials expand design options and applications, with the positive impact on fuel economy, passenger safety and comfort.  

Canatu CNT film heaters can be integrated into automotive windshields to keep optical surfaces clear for ADAS camera and LiDAR systems to function in any weather. Canatu CNT film heaters are based on transparent conductive film and entirely wire-free. Since the whole surface is conductive, the CNT film heaters provide even heating without optical distortion. Due to high flexibility, Canatu CNT film heaters can be 3D formed which is ideal for instance in LiDAR applications.
