The future of mobility depends on the use of optical sensors, such as cameras and Lidars, to enable ADAS and autonomous systems to achieve safe and efficient transportation and mobility. While these systems have some capability to see through adverse weather conditions, when there are contaminants on the sensor lens, such as raindrops, dirt, snow, etc., the sensors go ‘blind’ and the underlying system can fail. This is a threat to the safety of the vehicle and passengers, as well as threat to the industry’s ability to effectively and safely achieve higher levels of ADAS.
