Fog conditions can be a major concern for drivers in many parts of the world. Many vehicle accidents have occurred due to fogging conditions that have occurred rapidly. One company may have an answer to keep the fog particles from forming on the windshields of cars and trucks. They are developing a way to heat up a windshield without the use of costly copper heating elements. The group has designed a special coating, consisting of a transparent coat of carbon nanotubes (CNT), to cover the surface of a windshield. When electricity is supplied to the windshield, it becomes a heater that can clear the surface of a windshield in a short period of time.
