Rain / Light Sensor

for vehicles with high-angled windshields

Rain / Light Sensor


  • Designed specifically for vehicles with steeply sloped windshields
  • Rain sensor
    Detects various rain situations and controls the windshield wipers
  • Light sensor
    Switches low beams on/off in various light conditions
  • Optimized design with extremely compact shape

Customer Benefits


  • Increases driving comfort and safety
  • Manual driver intervention in various rain and light conditions is almost unnecessary
  • Newest software algorithms (e.g. for detecting salt, streaks, dirt) allow the wiper system to perform the right action at all times
  • Application customizable for various types of windshields
