The aim of this thesis is to evaluate some of the design decisions that go into designing a control panel, namely appropriate wireless protocols to control the smart glass. The original request came from the company CGM which owns a prototype of a smart glass which has the ability to switch between having an opaque or transparent appearance. With this ability, it is possible to replace the regular glass with smart glass or use it to screen off areas. The project was initiated by overviewing the smart glass techniques and followed by a study and evaluation on different techniques for the wireless technologies available to control the glass. The range, security and maturity of the technique are factors that CGM considers important and these parameters formed the basis for our evaluation. Additional factors such as bandwidth, interference, cost, and suitability with the smart glass are also added in order to give a better evaluation result. With the consideration of the mentioned factors and the area of usage, Bluetooth LE was recommended as the technology to use for the wireless control panel.
