An affordable anti-glare device, developed with a unique graded coating technology for the first time in the world, is set to hit Indian markets to take the “blinding blues” out of the night driving.
Night Driving Filter (NDF), designed and developed by the Central Scientific Instruments Organisation (CSIO) here, has already been granted the international patent by the USA, Australia and had been applied in Japan and Germany for the same.
“It would be a boon for night drivers and the automobile industry as it would help in preventing road accidents to a large extent,” CSIO Director Pawan Kapur said.
Dr Kapur said NDF, with a unique graded coating, used for the first time in the world, is a night driving safety device for protecting eyes from the dazzle caused by excessive visible radiation and UV radiations from the headlights of the approaching vehicles.
It would be available in the market at the cost of between Rs 2000 to Rs 5000.
