  • Publication number: 20210107256
    Abstract: A method for determining pane thicknesses and a wedge angle of a coated windshield for a projection arrangement of a head-up display. A wedge angle and a combination of glass thicknesses are determined by means of which the glass ghost image and the layer ghost image are optimally reduced. The method proceeds from a starting thickness of the two glass panes of the windshield for which that wedge angle is determined, in an iterative process, that represents an optimal compromise between the minimization of the glass ghost image and the minimization of the layer ghost image. Then, the glass thicknesses are determined varied within a specified range for each combination of the optimal wedge angles. Thus, it is possible, iteratively, to identify that combination of glass thicknesses that results in the least occurrence of ghost images, in addition to the associated optimal wedge angle.

  • Patent number: 10850477
    Abstract: A vehicle composite pane having an outer pane made of glass and an inner pane made of glass that are bonded to one another via a polymeric intermediate layer is presented. According to one aspect, the intermediate layer includes a first wedge inlay and a second wedge inlay that are made of different materials, each of the inlays being wedge-shaped and having a wedge face. According to another aspect, the wedge faces are positioned one atop the other so that, in the direction from a lower edge to an upper edge of the composite pane, the thickness of the first wedge inlay increases and the thickness of the second wedge inlay decreases. According to a further aspect, at least one of the wedge inlays has a refractive index that differs from the refractive index of the outer pane and of the inner pane.
