Abstract:
In order to have a windshield wiper system according to wiped area and kinematic behavior requirements since the early phases of vehicle development, this paper makes use of a MATLAB optimization function to optimize the windshield wiper system.The main goal is to achieve the maximum wiped area by optimizing wiper blades lengths and orientations. Parallel to that, constrains make the method finds the optimum kinematic design for the windshield wiper linkage in terms of mobility, available area to fix the linkage on body and the maximum range of the blades oscillatory motion. This optimization is applied on an existent windshield wiper system of a domestic passenger car to present the benefits of the developed model.
