The geometry of the windshield wipers is not subject to legislation. However, the area to be wiped must fulfill certain standards. With CAVA Wiper, the user can simulate the geometry of the wipers and so determine the wiped area on the windscreen.
Used together with the Field of View feature in CAVA Vision, it is possible to check the percentage of wiped area within the field of view. Up to three wipers can be simulated within one feature here. As well as standard wipers, trapezium wipers and contra-directional wipers can also be accommodated. The calculation also provides information regarding the position of the wiper blade to the windscreen and can, therefore, be used to determine the quality of the wiper operation.
