\ Wind shield viper design based on air-flow analysis

Wind shield viper design based on air-flow analysis

Classical windshield vipers are based on 4-bar mechanisms. The resulting performance is lower than it could be due to the intermittent motion of the vipers. In addition, as the rain intensity increases the clarity of the vision worsens. A new viper system, similar to those used in jet aircrafts, based on directed airflow is to be developed, optimized, manufactured, and tested.
