“There was strong interest by various municipal transit systems in our SPD-Smart transportation products for the bus sector when we exhibited in June at Transports Publics in Paris,” commented Carl Putman, CEO of Vision Systems. “Municipalities were particularly impressed with the ability of our SPD-Smart products to quickly adapt to changing environmental conditions and passenger needs. We are exhibiting at InnoTrans because railway manufacturers are expressing a similar interest in variable tint window solutions that minimize heat build-up, provide shading, preserve views, and offer privacy. Our Nuance and Noctis SPD-SmartGlass products address these needs in a comprehensive manner, and our new multi-zone management systems adds additional functionality and flexibility when used in combination with the extraordinary light-control capabilities of these products.”
