Windshield Wiper Pressure Mapping

Utilizing a tactile pressure sensor, the Wiper™ System measures wiper blade to windshield interface force profiles under various testing conditions. The Wiper system measures the force distribution along the entire length of the blade at different positions on the windshield, providing important insights to improve the design. It is used as a research and development tool to improve blade and wiper system performance under different conditions such as "lift-off."

Key Features:

  • Map force distribution along wiper blade
  • Access real-time or recorded data
  • Dynamic measurement for "lift-off" testing
  • Collects and consolidates static measurements at different angles to capture full wiper cycle
  • Graphic and analysis capabilities
