Fuyao Glass Industry Group Co. Ltd. and Harxon Corporation have established a partnership to develop an advanced smart conformal antenna with automotive glass. Representatives from Fuyao Glass visited Harxon’s Shenzhen, China, headquarters on July 1.

According to the agreement, Harxon will specifically study the pass-through characteristics of high-frequency signals, and develop revolutionary automotive antennas based on the material and manufacturing craftsmanship of Fuyao Group automotive glass.

Both parties will establish a joint innovation team to research and develop a smart, multi-band conformal automotive antenna that integrates radio services with Fuyao’s smart automotive glass technology.

By combining the automotive glass and the antennas into one package, automakers capture immediate benefits of cost reduction, reduced installation complexity, and improved reliability.

Founded in 2008, Harxon Corporation (a BDstar company) is a customer-focused enterprise carrying out innovative research, manufacturing and marketing in high-precision GNSS antennas, ultra-reliable wireless data transmission radio modems, and smart antennas. Applications include surveying, precision agriculture, UAVs and automotive vehicles.

Fuyao Glass was founded in Fuzhou, China, in 1987. It is a multinational company specializing in the manufacture of automobile safety glass and industrial technical glass.
