Evaluate wiper blade force profiles and interface pressure distribution.
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 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, and Valeo use the Wiper pressure measurement system to test windshield wiper performance.

Components depend on system configuration. Additional items may be included with your system purchase.
The software is available in several languages including Spanish, French and German. View software language availability.
Data Acquisition Electronics connect to the sensor to scan the sensing elements and digitally send data to a PC. Electronics are included with a system, but additional equipment may be needed for more complex applications. System breakdown and product specs can be found on the configurations tab.
Some system add-ons require hardware to interface with external inputs. A complete list of system add-ons can be found on the add-ons tab.
Optional add-on packages are available to provide additional functionality to pressure mapping systems. The features streamline data acquisition, interface with 3rd party devices, or synchronize pressure mapping recordings with video.
Some system add-ons require hardware so users and external devices can interface with the pressure mapping system.
The equilibration process compensates for any variation or uneven output across individual sensing elements caused by manufacturing or repeated used of the sensor.
