Mercedes’s windshield wiper has its own smart sprinkler

It’s annoying to have something stuck on your windshield and it could take quite a bit of work to get it off. If it’s at night, it could be potentially dangerous to drive with a limited view of the road. Mercedez is changing the age-old technology of blasting water or liquid and wide it off with a wiper. 

The Magic Vision Control Wipers puts a sprinkler like on the wiper blade to replace conventional spray nozzles. A duct system will take washer fluid directly to the wiper blade, where the wiper fluid is sprayed out from many small laser-cut holes. The fluid will be precisely ejected to the front of the wipers and onto the windshield. And the wiper blade at the same time will sweep across the surface to in either direction.

In addition, the system comes with three partly autonomous programs for summer, winter, and cabriolet driving. It will work in accordance to outside temperature and automatically adapts washer fluid quantity to surrounding conditions. For instance, the embedded heating system will eject warm fluid to remove frost/snow/ice or foreign objects by melting or softening them, making sweep-cleaning more effective. Moreover, it is estimated the Magic Vision Control saves about 50 percent washer fluid than
conventional windshield wiper system.

Currently, the Magic Vision Control Wipers only work on compatible Mercedes-Benz models that are usually pre-installed with the system. We do not have the exact quote but have learned from other sources that a pair of replacement blades cost 95
Euros, equivalent to $118 US dollars at the current exchange rate.
