Windshield Wiper Pressure Distribution

Product Announcement from Tekscan, Inc.

Windshield Wiper Pressure Distribution-Image

Utilizing a tactile pressure sensor, the Wipersystem 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 design. It is used as a research and development tool to improve blade and wiper system performance under different conditions such as “lift-off”.

Various industry leaders such as Ford, Hyundai, Nissan, Bosch, Toyota, Valeo, and SIAT use the Wiper pressure measurement system to test windshield wiper performance.

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
