Conventional windshield cleaning systems are designed for a certain driving speed: airstream increases along with speed, the washer fluid spray is deflected, less fluid reaches the wiper field and cleaning performance is correspondingly less effective. Apart from driver visibility, camera- and sensor-based driver assistance systems behind the windshield are also impaired or can even switch off entirely.
The innovative Jet Wiper arm directs the washer fluid exactly where it is needed and at the exact volume required. These measures make for efficient utilization of the washer fluid and up to 50 percent can be saved. What is more, the perfect function of optical systems such as cameras or LiDAR arranged in the wiper field is ensured, thereby creating the conditions for autonomous driving of the future.
