AviationGlass & Technology (AGT) and AIM Altitude are working together on innovations based on AGT’s Smart Mirror for aircraft cabins. The product will be displayed at Aircraft Interiors Expo, to be held on April 2-4, 2019, in Hamburg, Germany. The companies say the enhancements to the AeroGlass Mirror will enable it to incorporate branding and advertising, conceal an invisible display, and show passenger and crew information.
AIM Altitude brings expertise in creating custom aircraft furniture integrating new technology. Embedded lighting and touchscreen buttons enable AGT’s AeroGlass mirrors to turn into screens. Possible applications include integrated screens in bulkheads, galleys or in lavatories for advertising and passenger communications, including ‘close the door’ and ‘return to seat’ signs.
“This cooperation with AIM Altitude helps AGT demonstrate just how versatile our AeroGlass mirror products can be in aircraft interiors,” said Jaap Wiersema, COO at AGT. “In addition to the endless design possibilities and beauty factor, its integrated display becomes a channel for communications not only with passengers but also among crew members.”
“Our aim is to help customers successfully integrate new and exciting technologies into their unique flight experiences and this collaboration with AGT enables us to expand our range of solutions for aircraft interiors,” said Ross Burns, group lead industrial designer at AIM Altitude. “Integrating AeroGlass mirrors into our furniture means enhanced onboard interaction in a highly attractive and efficient manner.”
